so i've quite recently decided to go and look for a fretted 5-string (i haven't found one yet, but that's a whole 'nother thread, innit ), and provided that i eventually get my hands on one, that leaves me with my 4-string Spector. now, to me having a 4 and when you have a 5 is kind of a useless situation to be in, so i was thinking that maybe i could defret my Spector so that she wouldn't just be sitting around going unused while the new 5 invades her territory? how the hell would i do this? and is it a wise decision? would i be better off buying a fretless instead of "making" one? i read somewhere that if you defret a bass, the side markers on the neck don't line up with the notes properly, or something like that? i'm terribly wozzed out about this, so any help is appreciated.
