5 string active fretless? For under £1000?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by CauliColin, Jul 24, 2012.


  1. Before you start, I already searched 'fretless under 1000' and it yielded 3 results, so I'd thought I'd ask. What options or available for me if I want to get a 5 string active (maybe active/passive) fretless bass for under £1000. I am able to go a bit higher. I am preferably looking for new as well. Thanks!

    I'd look into a Warwick. Should be able to get a good one under 1000. Edit: Ibanez Gary Willis is not bad either.

    The Carvin SB5000 is available fretless. Worth a look, if you're after a modern J bass sound.
     
  5. I own a streamer std, and the only reason I asked for a fretless was because I see no way I could improve on the standard (well maybe a tougher body ;). )
    Thanks!
