    pedals, you might be able to find a multi unit with acoustic & fretless sims on it.

    You could save four times as long as you already have, and get the Azola Jazzman fretless 5 acoustic at Bass Alone. On second thought, never mind. As soon as I can get approval from the finance department I might go after it myself.
     
  4. You might find a Godin A4 fretless for around that much, maybe a little more. Mine was $800 CDN with case, so that's actually less than $600 US.

    In any case, the Godin is my vote for best sounding acoustic/electric fretless at any price. :)

    I would have to agree that the Godin acoustic is a great sounding bass. Godin is one of the few companies that specializes in amplified acoustic instruments. If you can find one, they should be in your price range (or very close).
