I've come to the realization that there's no way I can afford an upright any time soon, so I've decided to get a decent fretless electric for playing some jazz gigs. My question to you all is, what is a good fretless for jazz for under $500? I owned a Modulus Genesis fretless 5 a few months back, which was a superb instrument, but sadly had to sell it I don't need something that nice right now, but I do want a good sounding, comfortable player since I'll be using it often. I'm also interested in your opinions on how to achieve an authentic "jazz" tone (doublebass-ish) on a fretless electric (strings, pickup config, setup, etc). Thanks in advance for the help!
