Hello all of you fretless people! I have been wanting to venture into the fretless world for some time now and I absolutely love the whiney fretless "mwaaahh" sound. I have been shopping around at my local stores and doing alot of research here on the forums and a few other web sites. I haven't been able to get my hands on more than a handful of fretless basses locally ; and the ones I have tried I enjoyed playing (mainly Fender Jazzes and Yamahas); however they were really lacking the desired sound I am searching for. They have mostly been kind of plain "thuddy" sounding with no "mwaahh" at all; similar more to a very plain upright sound. Perhaps the stores just didn't really have them setup properly. I realize there are alot of factors in getting the "elusive mwaahh",...setup, strings, woods, electronics, and of course the player's own ability. I guess my question is,... what would be some of the best basses out there for this sound I'm looking for? Or another way of asking it...are there any basses out there that just have a natural ability to produce the "mwaahh" sound better than others? I'm sorry if this sounds too much of a general or repetitive question. I've done a search and found some good info, just wanted to get some more straight up stuff from you guys. Also, I would be looking to spend in the $800-$1400 range if this would also help with the choices. Any suggestions or commments would really help since I can't get my hands on too many fretless basses here to give 'em a test drive. Thanks!
