yes they are, but they have a diffrent slap sound, not completely diffrent but it just sounds more 'tight' but with less 'punch' added to it, I think it sounds a bit dull, but they slap just as good as any ordinairy bass. though I'm not a real slapper so I don't really care that much.

Take a hybrid thing, instead.

Like this one. It's not modified. You can buy it with this fretboard.

Wooo!!! A genius in maths. You can count.
It' got 9 frets, then the thickness of the fretboard increases, so that you can play well all across the fretboard. This fucking bass costs 3990!!!

I can't imagine anyone'll buy it.

I'd go for the EDEN-amp, too.

How to make your own fretless bass?

And here he is taking the frets off, this is what he says:



'The frets are removed by heating them up with a soldering iron and a small bit of solder for better heat transference. This will break any glue bonds that may be holding the frets in place'

and heres the picture of him finishing his fretless off..a job well done


here's what he says:


'Great care must be taken not to remove chunks of fingerboard from the fret slots.

Please don't try this at 3:00 AM Saturday morning after you've returned home from a gig that you wished you had a fretless. We've seen that.'

That guy is crazy.
How could he do this???
It seem sto be a quite expensive bass. If he could afford this one it's no problem to buy a good fretless.
He's definetly crazy. How could he put a fucked uo smilie on such a wonderful natural-wood-top!?!?!?!?!

Yeah I don't like that guy. He should have done that to a Peavey.

damn, you guys are right, that bass has bartolini pickups and a nice body, the fucking smilie sucks but making it fretless is even dumber.

making a bass fretless is difficult, and it can fuckup the neck and the sound really badly.

if you want a fretless bass, don't convert it, or let it be converted by a guitar custom shop or something.
you'de better just buy a fretless then fuck a good bass up.

did you know jaco pastorius did make his bass fretless himself? haha, pretty silly, the fender relic of that guy is fucking expensive and he just fucked a normal fender up a bit.

I don't think there were many fretless-basses around when Pastorious did that. So he had no choice. And Fender loves him for that, because now they can sell fucked up basses for fucked up prices.
Pastorious refilled the gaps of the frets with finish (or is it laque? ) for boats. This had to be a very different tone of the original: 1. without frets 2. different tone because of tons of boat-finish.

yeah, that's right! boat finish haha, pretty weird huh.

I don't like fender at all, they make heavy basses with an overall crappy sound, only the extremely expensive signature jazz basses are okay, but it's nothing special if you ask me, I'de rather have a musicman if I would buy a classic bass..
