Hi all, I was wondering which of these fretlesses would sound most like a DB. I know nothing sounds like a DB but a DB, but, i dont have 2000 bucks handy. So, would a jazz bass or p bass give me more upright sound. Maple or rosewood on a fretless board. Im talking about an Essex, not fender, and i know they dont make a fretless maple j. Neway, thanks alot for your help. Oh, and also, is it possible to mount something like a hot shot piezo p-up somewhere on a solid body electric, and still get good acoustic sounding tone, or does it only work on something with a sounding box. That ought to make any fretless sound a little more uprightish huh? thanks again.
