    Can anyone recommend a good 5 string fretless on a budget under $1000?

    Plenty of used Carvin 5ers can be found for under a grand. Great American made basses that happen to have awful resale value.

    Alder black satin body, unlined ebony fretless fingerboard, 34", 24 frets

    Bought for new last week for €. 400,00
    ($. 520.00) coupled it with a Warwick WA300 head (adviced by Mr. Andy Irvine in person:)) payed €. 300,00 ($. 400.00)
    This setup it's gonna induct me into the magic world of fretless bass playin' (in thrash metal)
    I'm very excited

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    You can get a Schecter studio 5 fretless for (usually) under $700.

    I just spec'd out a Carvin B50F for $888 plus shipping. Exellent instrument.
