I am coming into the market for a brand new 6 string fretless bass. The following are some of the attributes which I would like: 1) Not much more than a $2000 price tag 2) Good playability for a 6 string (neck manageable, I have medium sized hands, string spacing comfortable) 3) Good fretless tone- both able to get "mwah" and warm bassy fretless sounds while still being clear 4) Prefer neck-thru but if it was a good enough bolt-on I wouldn't mind 5) Smooth "buttery" fretless playability I will be using the bass mainly for jazz and blues with the occasional classic rock, reggae, or fusion song. I am looking to use it for a fair deal of chordal and solo playing so it must be able to cut through the mix pretty well. Right now a CARVIN ICON 6 is my first choice, but if you have any otherwise suggestions, I would appreciate them very much. Thanks!
