    It doesn't look like Rondo will be getting any for months. Does anyone know where I can get a fretless neck that will fit the SX pocket on the cheap?

    Thanks

    For a few bucks more, you can get a whole fretless bass from Rondo.

    Give her the actual cost analysis breakdown of the two scenarios just to show her you're trying to be practical instead of a gear junkie. Maybe she'll appreciate it? :bag:

    1) Buy new fretless from Rondo
    2) Switch necks on the two basses
    3) Sell previously fretless bass with fretted neck
    4) ???
    5) Profit!

    Sell your bass and get a fretless. That's what my wife would tell me (and has).
