Hello! I'm new to this forum, but not to playing bass. Please be gentle... <g> Anyway, one of my summer projects is buying a bass guitar. I went to a shop today and tried out a lot, and absolutley fell in love with this little purple-ey blue Fender Jazz bass. It was a lot of fun to play, and sounded great. The only problem was that it was a fretless. I personally don't like frets, but that probably comes from years of playing string bass. I loved the smooth feel of the neck, and the absence of the fret buzz I'm so awful about. But I'm afraid my Jazz band director won't like the fretless sound. I'm still in High School, and he has some say in what I buy because, after all, it's his band and I'll be using it for him. Does anyone have any advice on how I could sell him on this wonderful bass? Becides begging?
