    EBAY... When I decided to try fretless I got a Washburn MB-4 for less than $100 including shipping. Doesn't sound bad considering what it cost. I did some minor set up, put on new strings thats all. Their are lots of decent sounding "budget" basses available and you can often find them on ebay cheap for a used one. I still play that old washburn from time to time.
