Long title. I have had my fretless (Ibanez SR500F) for just under two months, and what was the biggest difference for me in going from a shortscale fretted to a long scale fretless? It wasn't going fretless. There's still some adjustment there, but I got the hang of it fairly quickly. Still want to get better. It wasn't the ability to slide and go Mwah--that was the fun part. It wasn't the longer scale requiring longer reaches with my fingers. I've played various scales on guitars and adapted easily--same thing with bass. For me the biggest difference has been the string tension difference between the short scale and the long scale. It's not a big deal, I've adapted to it, but it does require a bit of adjustment for me. I'm just a bit surprised. I thought the fretless part would be the biggest adjustment for me. Anyone else make that change from fretted to fretless at the same time as a scale length change?
