Hi, I'm in the market to buy my first bass guitar. I don't know how to play bass but from what I've seen I'd like to purchase a four string fretless electric bass. Can anyone argue why this wouldn't be a good choice (getting fretted and or more strings?). Can anyone also recommend a good model to purchase? I'd really like to get a good quality instrument in the 1k to 2k range (maybe someone can argue about the price point versus quality as well). I'm totally new to this so I have really nothing to go off of. As far as the kind of bass music I enjoy a good example would be "Get The Funk Out" by Extreme, have always enjoyed rock music with a prominent bass sound to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
