I normally can make up my mind with no one's help, but, on this issue, I am stuck. O.K. I've decided to get another fretless, and will be selling my MIM fretless Jazz.(more on that later) Some of you may remember that I have a preference for one pickup basses, and ones that are passive. I've been playing my Casady and 5 string Yamaha like a madman, but I do miss the "mwah" of a fretless, especially through a flanger. So, my two choices are: The Dean Rhapsody fretless or The MTD Kingston fretless Please give your opinions even if you haven't played both. I haven't played either, but, I'd never played a Jack Casady and bought one mainly on the testimonies of others. I still want to get a Musicman 5, but that's almost $1,500.00 Either the Dean of the MTD are about 1/3 the price. Plus it still gives me the excuse to get a MM5 further down the road. Let me know what you think. Mike J.
