    I'm looking to purchase a high-end 6 string fretless, Alain Caron 6 or MTD 6 string. I'm looking for playability information, pics and info from any current or previous owners/players, not sales or marketing stuff.

    Two nice choices both known for great tone and playability, fbass leaning more vintage toned with a 28 (not) fret neck. MTD more modern toned with a distinctive asymetrical neck that a few dislike.

    I guess the Alain model comes with the RMC piezos in the bridge, these have an amazing swell to them and sound killer for double stops higher up the neck.

    Rolls Royce or Bentley, tough call :D
