I have always played 4 string fretted instruments, but I am thinking of trying to start playing a fretless. I want a reasonably good instrument, but don't want to spend the money for a premium bass. I'm used to really great instruments, so going to a $200 kicker would drive me crazy. I guess I could spend up to $500. If money was no issue, I would either buy a Pedulla Buzz or a Zon Sonus (or Hyperbass). Obviously those are too expensive, but I want to get as close as I can without breaking the bank (just bought two fretted basses!). Suggestions?? Thanks.
