I am looking for my first fretless and need some advice. I am willing to spend up to around $1200 or perhaps more for the right bass, but could also spend $300 if a Cort Curbow or MTD Kingston is the right choice. Here is what I need: Prefer a 4 string, but could be convinced to get a 5 (but with a 34" neck). I want a very bright sound with loads of buzziness/mwah. I'm not really a fan of warm and woody sounds, so rosewood is out of the question. I will definitely use roundwound strings. I have no major biases against anything. My favorite fretless thus far has been the Pedulla Buzz basses and I had a deal for one before the buyer flaked on me. So I assume I need a synthetic fretboard, like a Ebanol/Diamondwood type or one coated with an epoxy, like the Buzz. I've never tried a Lightwave equiped bass, so not sure if that is a viable option for this kind of sound. Any advice? Anything I am not thinking of. Why not just get a Pedulla Buzz? I am hoping that people have some good advice that leads me to something I might like better. As always, Thanks.
