What is not too expensive?
A budget would help.
Telling us what styles of music you play wouldn't hurt either.

Ibanez has some fairly affordable five and six string fretless basses. But a budget would help.

Budget?
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Dingwall makes the best basses ever, and has a fretless option for most models. My next bass will most likely be a fretless Dingwall.

AH ****. KILL THE BRONY SCUM.

Also, regardless of your budget, Ibanez will have something for you. Warwick/Rockbass are the same though they lack the super-budget series.

Ibanez always has something for every budget, and Schecter has a fretless Stiletto 5 for around $700 new

I only gave an honest suggestion for what the thread starter asked. How did I ever offend you?

WTF is a brony????

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

Subhuman.

Back on topic, also look at Yamahas, new and used.

I ask again; what did I do to offend you? I sincerely doubt giving an honest reply to thread starter's question warrants such animosity, especially considering you did the same thing yourself.

We are lots of other places on the Internet, too. Still, if anyone wants to discuss bronydom further, I would suggest taking it to the pony thread, lest we clutter up this unrelated thread.

Ibanez really is probably your best bet, but... Yeah, a budget would be good.

Ibanez are better value and, in my experience, do much nicer 5 strings. Fender are good at what they do, Ibanez are good at everything else.
