    Looking into maybe getting a 5 string fretless bass. I previously owned the ESP 204SMFL which was mediocre at best. Currently looking at the MTD Kingston, Warwick Corvette Pro Series 5, and the Ibanez Gary Willis 5. Carving basses have also been suggested. Looking for a a durable good sounding fretless

    Difficult to give a recommendation without these bits of information.

    I have a Peavey Cirrus fretless.. a great bass. I am considering trying to get a fretted version. The Kingstons are nice as well.

    Doesn't matter new or used...probably $1200 max

    Although I'm thinking of selling mine (as I'm not playing fretless much these days), I have to agree with snyderz post that the EBMM 5 fretless is amazing to play. Killer sound, easy action, very comfy. Highly recommended.
