Hey there fretless players, Last month I purchased a used Pedulla Rapture J2 (5 string fretless) off of Ebay. After recieving it, I realized that the string spacing is the narrower 17mm spacing. Oh well, I thought, I'll get used to it. So (hastily)I sent it off to Pedulla for a fingerboard refinish. I got the bass back and took it out on a jazz gig...lots of soloing and uptempo walking. My plucking hand was (still is) killing me after the gig. Being a life long Fender Jazz player, I found it difficult to play my favorite lines across the tighter spaced strings. "WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH 35" SCALE?!!!!!!!!!!"...I'm getting there, relax... I realize that I need a wider spaced 5. I'm not a fan of what Fender is offering(please, no hate mail), but I do like the Lakland skyline stuff. Have any of you fretless players made the move from a 34" scale fretless to a 35" fretless ? If so, was it a major adjustment for the fretting hand to get used to ? (I have to read alot of charts, so staring at the neck isn't an option). Thanks.
