OK, help me fuel my GAS. I'm looking to get a 5-string fretless. I'm torn between an MTD 535 24-fret, a Modulus Genesis 5-string, or a Rob Allen MB-2 5-string. The first two are available for me to buy now; the latter has to be ordered (no big deal.) -I like the MTD (have had a fretted before) BUT I don't like the balance--the upper horn is too short, and that coupled with the 35"-scale makes a hard-to-reach-in-the-first-position bass. At least to me. I have never heard a fretless 535 before, so I'm unsure about the sound. -I like the Modulus Genesis BUT I'm sure it will be heavy and I have no clue about the sound. Never tried or heard one before. I like the body ergnomics (the big profile of the body looks comfy to me, and the upper horn goes well beyond the 12th fret- which should make for a very balanced bass). -I like the Rob Allen MB-2 5-string, BUT I wonder if those tapewound LaBellas with the 35"-scale will be too much work. I like the semi-hollow body sound (have had a Turner Renaissance before), but I also want a fretless that will play itself, with little effort. Tapewound strings seem to be available only in heavy-gauge, which leads to high tension. I use low tension strings for the most part. They all have comparable prices. Then there is Matt Pulcinella Guitars, and F Bass -- both worthy considerations. Let me hear you!
