I still want to enter the fretless owner club (I'll seek the fretless player club later ) but I haven't got many bucks for that matter. I've got 2 choices : - asking a luthier/guitar tech to defret my old Ibanez SR405 which I don't use anymore. It has already been modified with a mediocre neck from a SR305 (the original neck was broken). A good luthier I called told me that it will cost me from 1200 FF to 1800 FF depending on the actual quality of the board (~170-260 $) - selling the Ibanez (I think I can get ~1800 FF / 260$ from it) and buy a new Yamaha BBN4 Fretless for ~2500 FF (~360$) The second hand market on fretless is totally dead in my town, I won't defret myself and I can't spend more than the price of the Yamaha. So what would you do ?
