This question maybe suits one of you 6-stringers.

I've been playin bass for a short while (around two years). I use a regular fretted 4-string at the moment, but I really like the smoother sound of a fretless more. Now, I feel I'm still in the learningprocess with my 4-string (yeah, I know, you never stop learn but you know...)

So I was wondering if getting myself a 6-string fretless will mess up my learning on the 4-string. Maybe a stupid question, but I've never even touched a fretless bass, and from what I hear, it's much harder to play. Oh, btw, the reason I want a 6-string is becous I want the low B and thought that if I do start to learn more strings on bass I could just aswell skip a 5-string since I figure I will want the higer string aswell for solos and such.

Another question is, what good 6-string fretless basses should I consider when buying? I'm not rich, so if you know of any moderatly priced it would be great if you could tell me those. Still... want a quality one though! ;)
