Hello !

I have been playing bass since 1974, and "allways" Jazz-bass-clones.

Now I have (finally) decided to get a REAL Fender (Jazz, of course). I found out that there is a fretless version of the J-bass. Has anyone any comments on fretless, is is difficult to hit the right note ? What is the advantage (other than getting rid of that fret-rattle) ?

I'm also thinkin about 5-string, we play a lot of covers, and nowadays there are a lot of 5-strings around, so if I want to be accurate I need one, too !

Thanks in advance and keep on thumpin' !
