I tried the search and was basically over(under)whelmed by posts that didn't really answer my question so here it is! I want to add a fretless to my arsenal, most likely a four string but I could probably cope with a five (either b-g, or e-c), and am stuck with having to buy it with my "gig money" which at this point has taken a beating due to some recent purchases. I want a bass that can get a woody growl but can also be at least a little hi-fi. I think something along the lines of an SX bass is what I can afford but haven't heard one so I don't know how they sound. I definitely would consider buying used as well. Finish and/or wood selection (i.e. looks) is secondary to sound, and I like conservative styles (no bug-on-the-windshield designs) and lined fretboard is a plus. any suggestions and sound-bites.
