    OK heres the deal

    I have $200 left to pay on my Yamaha TRB 5II
    I am un-employed (got fired the other week)
    I have an Ashton AB705 that i will soon de-fret when i gt my yamaha.

    I cant wait to de-fret my bass, i want a fretless, but the thing is i dont know how long it will be until i get my Yamaha. 3 days, or 6 weeks, i do not know.
    I need advice, is it a good idea to de-fret now, or should i wait until i get my Yamaha, incase something goes horribly wrong with the de-fret. I think its risky de-fretting before i get my Yamaha, but it IS a sure thing, that i will get this Yamaha...

    ..HELP!!

  4. Never throw out your old clothes until you have new clothes.

    Wait for the Yammy.

    DE FRET


    If you mess it up:eek: :bawl: That will make you more apt to get some green together and get the "bass of your dreams":D It will also make you take your time and do a good job so you keep a bass at all times.
