Some of you read the "...got bass?" thread. I have a 5 string fretless Carvin Bunny Brunel model with the "hard as nails" coating. The main reason for this is it doesn't have the "mwha" property. It has a good growl to it, it's a nice bass, but it doesn't have the sound I want in a fretless. The bad thing is that my Samick 4 string fretless (that I paid $200 for) has a much better "mwha" with bad strings on it. This isn't a pickup problem, it's something in the bass. That and the pickups are a little lame. I could change the pickups but if it can't "mwha" now, it won't do it with different pickups. So I'm a little disappointed right now. btw... do you spell it "mwha", "mwaa", or something else ?
