    Looking into maybe getting a fretless bass. Had an ESP 204SMFL, construction was mediocre. Any suggestions into a durable good sounding 5 string fretless bass? I have been looking at the Ibanez GWB35, Warwick Corvette Pro Series 5 and the MTD kingstons. Thanks

    I have a Carvin 6-string fretless (LB76PF), and it's well put together and plays great. The new price is typically quite a bit higher than the others you mention, but you can score some serious deals on a used Carvin.

    This is the DB side of Talkbass. You might ask this question on the BG side.
