    This bass inspires me SR5 30th Anniversary

    I have had my SR5 30th Anniversary for about 2 months now...I have watched videos of people reviewing it...But where it really shines is when you play it out in a live band setting....Wow did Musicman do this Bass right. The thing that comes to mind is SMOOTH and Punchy without being Harsh. I have owned ten musicman basses and can truly say that this bass has inspired me to play. Thank you again to Pete Dubaldo at Dubaldo music and AJ at Musicman for everthing they have done for me....And the whole Musicman family.After playing for 30+ years its like being with and old friend.Thank you.

    Someday I will get to try one of these! Dallas is not exactly overpopulated with them.

    I 100% agree with this. I absolutely love my 30th Anniversary. In fact, since I got it, I have rarely played my other basses.

    Loving the reviews on the 30th Ann. SR5 I have 2 Questions for whoever wants to answer them
    What is the ordering window for these basses?
    Are they available as a fretless?

    Thanks

    Scott

    Scott,

    No, they do not come in Fretless. The only options available or with a Maple or Rosewood fretboard.

    The ordering window at EBMM is usually 3 to 6 months on average but you would need to talk to EBMM customer service to get a specific window. However, if you check reverb.com or get on Guitar Center or Musicians Friends websites, I think they have them in stock.

    With mine, I ordered it the day after the bass was announced at NAMM. My bass was finished on 02-27-17 and the Guitar Center I shop at got it I believe on April 2nd.

    Thanks Jay for the response

    I Kind of thought there wouldn't be a Fretless version when I checked the specs but thought I would ask.
