    I am thinking about stepping up and getting a 5-string bass now, and i was thinking about something cheap (i don't have a job, but i have to help my mom around the house more and she will get me stuff ) and I need some suggestions. Maybe after I get it, i will defret it, because my first bass that i learned on was a 1970 P-bass that was fretless, so it is kinda second nature to me, i love my P-bass. The 2nd bass i have is an Aria Pro 2, 24 frets, very heavy (explorer body), and 2 pup's (very good sound, i am guessing origonal). Well, bring on the suggestions, I will just get a 5-string and defret it myself cuz i am good like that LOL.
