Sorry to take a second thread for myself, but I'd like to put a different spin on my original one... I can spend $1000 approx. on a bass guitar. I want something that's impressive, with bass enhancers (bass/treble cut etc.) that's fretless. I've been taken in the by the idea of a 5-string fretless... Are these a good idea? If not, could you specify a model and brand of bass you would recommend. Feedback would be most appreciated.
