Active or passive?

    I currently play a 4-string fretless P, but are now looking for a 5-string fretless. The Warwick Rockbass Streamer looks especially interesting. However, where I live, the stores do not keep fretless 5:s in stock so I can't try them out without ordering...

    Do anyone have any recommendations/comments concerning fretless 5:s?

    Do a fretless 5 B-string need active pickups to sound good?
