Hi Everyone, Before you read this let me put it out there I have no idea when or even if I do this but assuming I would I need some outside input. First I yet to see a solid body Kala in any store I been to, but always see a U-Bass acoustic and even own one: Fretted 4 string. Now, as someone that learns/plays/practice primarily on a Fender P-Bass (4-string) Elite and a Fender Kingman that is also 4 I am iffy about going 5. Here's the deal, the main thing I don't like about my U-Bass is the lack of room from the 12th fret and on. I watched videos and did close-up looks of the neck and like how there is a lot of room after the 12th fret. So knowing that, and knowing I love Koa (if I do this Koa would be my choice) I am on the fence about 4 or 5 and fretted vs fretless. My thoughts are this. First this is just going be a cool travel and couch bass. Whether it's the woman sleeping, or going on the plane to visit my sister, it's strictly that. I am buying this thing not going to worry about cosmetic damage and etc. But still I want it playable and not so limiting which is why I am considering 5 string. First thought, okay it's a putz around bass, and I am 100% a 4 string player, but would it be so bad if I just got this bass with 5 strings? Then I look at the neck and it's wide. Then I think fretted or fretless. The reason I am finding fretless appealing is the whole lack of fret noise. That really is the main reason. So again, this is all thoughts and debates in my head. Ideally I would like to find a store in the CT area that stocks these, and if they do I would make a trip to at least hold them which will probably get me into trouble for not sure if I could leave without it. But that is neither here nor there...well for now. So thoughts?
