Hi. This is my first post. I've been playing an Aria Pro II MAB-60 (that's what the receipt says, anyway) for ~8 years and feel maybe it's time to move on to something else. I guess my style has become more jazzy/funky and I've found myself bending the strings to get something like a fretless sound (works better with flatwounds...). But I've also found I'd like to 'go lower'. The question is, should I buy a 5-string fretless? (I've never played 5-string or fretless before.) Would it be foolish? If not, should I get a cheap one to see how it goes or something expensive assuming it will become my main bass? (e.g. StinRay5, costing ~3 times what I paid for the Aria) Or how about a fretted 5-string and get the Aria de-fretted? I'd value comments from anybody, especially if you've made a similar decision. Thanks in advance.
