Well, I want to buy a fretless, and I've just GOT to play before I buy. (I don't want to play the trading game again). Any recomendations of places that carry fretless basses, new and used (preferably used, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area). I may have to make the trip to Austin to go again to the Bass Emporium. Right now I'm open as to 4, 5 or 6. I want used preferably so I won't lose too much $$ if I don't incorporate fretless as I hope to my musical palette. I can go up to $1000 (maybe more) and play lots of different styles of music. Thanks for any input.
