Hey: I'm looking for a mid-priced ($900-$1300 street price) five-string fretless and am interested in the Peavey Cirrus and the MTD Saratoga. I owned a Peavey TL-5 bass several years ago that I really liked and like the fact Cirrus basses are built in the USA whereas Saratogas are built in Korea. What do you think the MTD's ebanol fretboard would do for the fretless tone. I'd think it would lessen the chance for dead spots to appear on the fretboard. These two basses are priced about the same. Any one have opinions on what the better sounding/more reliable bass would be between these two?
