Nice guitar. I like the Martin sound.

I play bass at local churches. I have a 78 Fender P-bass (my pride and all original), a 5-string Ibanez, and a fretless bass that I don't think I've touched in 10+ years.

You can not beat a Martin dreadnought for tone and projection...but, I tell you, the Breedlove Stage Concert (Rosewood and Sitka) has a really nice tone for a finger picking size guitar ( a little smaller than the dreadnought body).

I have plucked a couple of the guys basses while they chuckle...but I do not see how you can move from a fretted to a fretless...the finger placement is different and your muscle memory starts hiccupping...the Michael Kelly fretless that I messed with was a beautiful acoustic bass. however.
