    I have a Squier VM FL, but eventually i will want to get a Tony Franklin, Jack Bruce (i know they are a lil different) type sound down the road.

    Something that will respond well to roundwounds, too (i will get the fingerboard resurfaced if they eat it up a lil)....???

    thanks guys..

    With proper technique (i.e. light touch and proper vibrato technique) you will not do any significant damage to your instrument.

    Specifically looking for active? I always felt that killed the fretless mwah that I love so much. Have you tried a fretless MIM Jazz? That's pretty much what I've always worked with using nickel rounds.
