Hey guys and gals. I'm looking into getting my first fretless bass. Just wondering what your guys opinion on getting one should be. I am looking at a few different criteria. 1. Price Should I spend 1500 on a Lakland 55-02 which is a fretless bass that I already have and love... Should I spend 700 on a Bass Mod 4 string bass that sounds amazing and has awesome controls... Or should I just spend about 200 to 400 on a beginners fretless so if i hate it I don't really waste money... 2. # of Strings Should I go with a 5 string which I like just for the add notes and the usual 35" scale for the B string... or should I go with a 4 string which would probably end up with a 1.5" nut (I like p bass' 1.65 or 1.625 better) 3. Strings What type of strings should I look at eventually trying on this if I do decide to get it. 4. Style I mainly play in a church band setting where I guess you can say the style lends itself to being more rockish type playing, so I am wondering if I did get this frettless would I just be putting it in the closet to only play it every once in a while... (don't need to do this again been trying to clear out my closet... done from 7 to 3 soon... ) Suggestion on fretless bass are appreciated as well. So that's what I'm wondering about any help will be nice. Thanks Gals and Gents.
