De-Fretting Sterling Sub Ray4
Has anyone done this? Encountered any specific problems?
I've been going crazy recently over the fretless musicman sound, but I'm on a bit of a budget. There's absolutely no way I can afford a fretless stingray any time in the foreseeable future, and the only way I can get this is either to change the neck on a Sub to a fretless neck, or to defret. I'm confident enough about defretting a bass to give it a go, and if I mess it up, then I can get a fretless neck.
So, has anyone tried this? Has anyone even put a fretless neck on a Sub? How does it sound? Does it have 'that' sound? I'm thinking earlyish Pino Palladino here by the way.
