  1. ok, not like im gunna die or anything but at least it got u in here. i have a not so great washburn 5 string and am looking for a new bass. i am thinking maybe fretless will give me the tone i want, but 5 string fretless would probably be pretty expensive, and i dont have too big a budget. i want a big soft tone like i get from an upright. preferably under 500$, nothing too high above 700$ in u could.

    thanks for the help

    Get an MTD Kingston fretless 5. Right around $500, and a killer fretless with a world class B string.
