I'm probably going to be getting some acoustic gigs this summer, so I've been thinking baout getting a fretless. Plus I've just wanted one for a long time, and now I've got an excuse to actually buy one. I'm kinda thinking about getting an Essex Jazz and taking the frets off, and then maybe doing a few mods. I don't really have much money to spend here, so I'd like to kep it less than three hundred, if at all possible. Another one I just looked at was the Dean Rhapsody fretless. The Brice V2 is also an option. Any input?
