    Hello, all! I've been reading this forum for a bit, and finally decided to post something. I'm considering a new bass, and (surprise) I can't decide which of the two basses mentioned in the subject to go with. If I go fretless, that makes it easy, as the JP5 isn't available fretless. I like to slap, and strum ala Les Claypool (still very much in the technique development phase on both), and it doesn't seem all that different to play on fretless. I don't have a lot of experience on fretless, but every time I pick one up, I love it. Any thoughts?
