Yeah I dunno much about doing it yourself but I'd say do what Jaco Pastorius did, use epoxy, I'm not really sure if he did anything else though....would be best to read a bit about him and how he de-fretted his bass, that should give you a good idea of how to go about the rest of it. And as for some fretless metal bass players? well...theres Steve Digiorgio, a fucking AWESOME metal bassist, he uses a 5-string fretless, an ESP I think....there are some videos of him here you should watch http://www.stevedigiorgio.com/music.html the three Dynamo ones at the top....he has an amazing sound. And I don't know of any other metal fretless players besides him, anyone else know?

Good luck man and cheers
