Hello there! I have been playing the electric bass for a few years now, and I own three basses, one 4-string sandberg california, one 6-string Ibanez btb, and a Fretless squire jazz bass. I have been interested in getting a new and improved fretless for a while now. I have a budget of around 1500-2000 dollars max, but it doesn't need to be that expensive at all. I play mostly rock, pop, and funk, with the occasional metal song. I would use my fretted basses for the funkier numbers, but I am looking for a fretless, something with a lot growl for the rock numbers. I am mainly looking for a 5-string, but 4-strings are a welcomed option as well. The finishes I like are mostly natural finishes, or "unglossed" (if that is even a word). Some options that i have been looking into myself are: Ibanez SRF705 Sandberg Californa TT4 Fretless RW TSB Some sort of Warwick, most likely corvette. Feel free to come with lots of tips! P.S. I don't live in the states, so my options when it comes to used basses are limited!
