  1. unfortunately i cant afford anything but my tanglewood warrior, but i'm dying for a fretless and i was considering having it defretted...
    any thoughts on this? :eek: (sorry about the crappy pic but i dont have a digital camera...)
  2. Yeah, umm leave it alone. You can get prod fretless's for like $200.
  3. yeah probably best, thanks hehe
    its a bit of a pain trying to find lefties at decent prices tho..
  4. I think you shoulnd't defret it if it is your main bass.. You might be needind those frets later.. You can find a decent fretted lefty, and defret it.

    By the way.. What did you mean by thoughts??'

    You need tips on how to defret it?
  5. i just meant thoughts about whether it was a good idea. but why do you think i may need the frets in future? do think fretted bassses have any advantages over fretless ones?
