De-fretting question

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Bassmasta86, Jan 27, 2003.


  1. Hey there,

    Recently I've been toiling with the idea of making my crappy Fender Squire P-Bass fretless.

    I have one problem though. A guy at a music store told me that my neck was a little "warped". I notice that I get some buzz at the fourteenth fret.

    My question is: Should I go for making it fretless even if I do get this buzz that won't go away??The buzz isn't huge or anything, but it is pretty noticable.

    I only want to make it fretless because now that I'm going to have my new Ibanez 6 string bass, I won't be playing it, and I won't get much if I try to sell it. Also, it will be just for learning on before I get a "true" fretless. So why not? :D

    Thank you in advance for your time :)
