It is not my first time buying from Glarry but I was in the market for a fretless bass. I received it in less than a week from my purchase date and I was impressed by how good the bass felt to play. I got the sunset color option finish is quite nice as there weren't any blemishes in the paint. I had to adjust the truss rod to get it playable as the action came a little too low for the first position to be audible. The bass comes with the tool for that adjustment and Glarry was happy enough to st ...

I am 100% satisfied with this purchase - I couldn't even identify a single suggestion for improvement. It is probably my 12th bass. I have had much worse than this one including at several times the price. This one is THAT good! I played a casual gig a few days after receiving it, absolultely love the sounds and playability of this one, and am thinking of making this one my main bass for certain gigs like this. If only they had any 5 string fretless bass in production (hint hint - I will buy one ...

I received the fretless bass that I ordered, and I do have a couple of comments. After playing it, I was pleased with quality considering the low price. The only concern I had were with the tuning pegs. The bass does not stay in tune, and as I try to tune it, the tuning pegs seem to lock up and then loosen to a fault. I will have to replace the tuning pegs as they just don't work. Other than that, a decent bass for the price. I would like to purchase additional guitars/bass guitars, but I am con ...

For the price I have to give it 5 stars. The strings they ship with are unusable, they literally feel jagged tin and sound like it. Clip them off and try some nylons or something else. The dots are completely off, just get a tuner and a pencil to mark the side frets yourself. For the price you can't beat it, totally playable with aftermarket strings.

Great bass for trying out fretless...full scale and low price.

Problem free ordering and delivery. The tip of the headstock slightly damaged probably because the package was handled upside down at some point. Not too bad, but it's there. Body unmarred.. Neck and strings needed to be set up properly, but that's to be expected. Good product for the price.

The quality of the instrument for the price is astounding. The bass was set up well right out of the box. Speaking of which, the transport packaging could do with some improvement as the neck was slightly damaged (see image). Not a terribly big deal but somewhat noticeable as the nick is right where my thumb rests on the neck. Nevertheless, I can only recommend Glarry instruments, especially if you're looking to do adjustments and setting up yourself without having to worry about doing damage. T ...

Just received my fretless bass. Box was beat.. But guitar was fine. I'm actually surprised how playable it is. The neck is nice and action is good. Nice sound. Clear and strong. I'm happy with it. Fretless sound is very cool!

My second Glarry bass. Absolute sound awesome, Out of the box has better playability , tone, and factory setup than any other of my non Glarry basses. After 65 years of playing, by far the most fun to play. I wish I had enough money for a Glarry Super Strat. These instrument are phenomenal at any price! Comes highly recommended at any price point. I added flat wounds for that elusive Jaco Pastorius sound. Great for anyone who wants to learn or just plain have tons of fun.

Very satisfied! I ordered a fretless bass to be first of its kind to try out. For the price, the bass plays great right out of the box. Sounds great too! Mind you, I do have a few Fender basses, including an American standard. Keep up the good work!

Just got my Glarry GP fretless bass today. Disappointed. The E string tuner is completely loose and both pickups were collapsed inside the body. When the string is loosened the tuner rotates about 45 degrees. The pickups are rattling around inside the body. Oh, well.

When I received my GP fretless Bass, there was a problem with the pickups not being mounted. Upon contacting Glarry, Lin was super helpful, friendly and expedited a solution very quickly. Glarry is sending me a replacement at no cost. Kudos for excellent customer service and I wish I could change the star rating but it seems I can't. I hold Glarry in the most high esteem. Thank you Lin!

Great bass guitar at any price. This bass guitar is a beautiful instrument with rich tone and great sound. Light weight makes it very playable. Recorded with it right out of the box. Definitely recommend.

I had my doubts. But in the end it's a great playing bass. I was in the market for a fretless. Didn't want to spend thousands and find I couldn't play it. So this option showed me a fretless is bad ass and now look forward to getting a 5 string next. I did have an issue with the tuners. They sent me replacements quick. Great customer service. Thanks Glarry.

I'm sorry to write a for rather than a five because I hope it wasn't the shipping provider's problem but my purchase arrived with a large dent hole in the box. Everything else appears to be great!

Very satisfied with this purchase. As many have mentioned, you simply cannot beat the quality of this instrument at this price point. Past reviews have mentioned string height being a bit high but I found it to be very comfortable. The instrument plays well, sounds good, looks good. What more can you ask? Order and delivery processes were very smooth and easy. I will definitely look into other instruments in the Glarry catalog. And there are some pretty good YouTube videos out there which can he ...

The box came slightly damaged. It looked like someone tried to open it. Both ends of the box was crushed. I didn't like the fact that it had what was written on the box. Up on opening the box, the Styrofoam was stuck and was basically destroyed trying to get it out. Now onto the bass...the bass was in great shape. No scratches or dents on the body or neck so that was good. After tuning the bass it played great. The neck straight and the string height was almost perfect for me. It played really ...

I'm a bassist with 43 years of experience and I already own 35 basses so I definitely didn't 'need' another bass. I ordered the fretless with no expectations because of such a low price. Upon opening the box I realized this bass looks good. I changed the strings to flatwounds, set the bridge, tweaked the truss rod and it was good to go. I never expected a satin finish neck but I've got to tell you...I really like this bass. Well worth the phenomenal low price. If you're expecting an Alembic then ...

Upon unboxing my guitar, the overall appearance of my fretless bass was stunning! The burlywood finish is beautiful and I was well pleased with its light weight. But after tuning the bass, I found it unplayable. The combination of bridge and neck settings caused the strings to bottom out heavily on the neck in the vicinity of the nut, requiring some extensive setting up to render it playable, something that a novice player would likely have trouble doing. but once the set-up was finally acco ...

This bass is incredible for the price you pay. I did a little set up on it, and it holds a tune and plays great now. The pickups sound incredible! Almost seems too good to be true, but this instrument really is a winner. Sounds great through an amp, mixer or interface. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I haven't quite been able to get the intonation right on the open G string. Maybe needs some replacement parts or strings to achieve that. It's also obviously not a fender jazz or a nice ri ...

Bought this with upgrading in mind.Got it on a Friday and gigged with it Saturday. No set up straight to the stage. Stayed in tune and sounded like a classic P style bass punchy and growly. The high-end of its tone was distinct and spot on, plenty of bottom with natural wood midrange cutting through the mix. I used it with my Musicman Bongo HS that day.

Dammed Fantastic! Playable right out of the box, great action. Quality is there, no issues at all. Going to go with tape wound strings but the round wound ones with it are quality. Very pretty too. Fret markers are one the fret line, not between like on fretted basses. Wanted a fretless and there is nothing even close to this price. 5 Stars & a bullet. Thanks!

Finally got my hands on one of these basses! I think I've wanted a fretless bass now for forty years! If you want to try a fretless bass and you're on a budget, this is the way to go! Very happy!

I am a musician but not a bass player so cannot judge from the point of view of a pro. However, the instrument fulfills my needs and I'm practicing with it daily. It's built solidly and needed no adjustment in order for me to play it. It was a good buy and serves my needs. Thank you, Glarry. Jim Ryan

The Good: This is a steal for the money. Out of the box it was a playable, solid instrument that a beginner could learn fretless bass on. It holds tune well, has minimal neck dive, and good quality wood. I was surprised and how light the bass felt and the neck was thin and fast. The pickup is solid and wiring was well done. The fit and finish was excellent. I would recommend this to someone wanting to learn fretless. The Bad: The nut is pure junk. I replaced it with a bone nut for under $10. T ...

A perfectly decent bass, good value


by C***r


on March 26, 2021

Awesome value! Of course there are a few issues: The fingerboard seems a little soft. My impulse is to want to put some kind of finish on it. The lack of fret lines on the side of the fretboard makes playing intonation more of a challenge than it needs to be. I'm not sure why they would bother to put the dots but not lines where you actually put your fingers. The pickups (I assume cheap ceramics, though I haven't yet looked) lack the low end definition that I'm used to. I ordered some P-Bass pic ...

Customer service was great ! All of my questions were answered at once. My instrument arrived well packaged and damaged free. The instrument was beautiful and only needed tuning to make music and music is what its about.
