So I have a soundgear sr505 sitting in my closet collecting dust, not a terrible bass, but I honestly dont understand why so many dudes play these things. Sounds like crap, anyhow, I figured I might as well convert to fretless. I watched a series of very in depth videos on the topic and having some lutherie experience, I decided to try it out. I spoke to a luthier friend and he suggested I do a compound radius on an epoxied fretboard. sounds like a lot of work. But I'm wondering what are some advantages/disadvantages to this idea. It's not an upright, so Im curious if someone could shed some light on the topic or if if should just get a sanding block and do the whole thing at a 14" radius sans epoxy.
