    ever played one?
    since I got my sr1800 I don't have much use for my sr500 but I would like to have a 4 string fretless and having done a lot of mods to the 500 I've grown a little attached to it.
    so far I've replaced the neck shim and pickups(emg35hz's for now), refinished the bass and installed a obp-3 preamp so theirs nothing much left but to defret and epoxy the neck. I think the new transblack finish would look slick with a high gloss epoxy fretboard and I allredy have the epoxy so...
    why not?

    At one point I wanted to buy a used SR500 and do this. I love the feel of that neck. I wouldn't do it to a maple neck because I like those too much but if you are up for the work I think it'd make a fine project.
