This is weird. It's an issue that seems to only affect me on the one bass (my fretless) and no other. I noticed that when I play the first three frets, my fingers, which are normally spread out far enough to be able to play each fret, struggle to touch the right place on the fingerboard. We're talking a millimater or so here, but it's causing serious handstrain and strain on the webbing of my hand. I initially ignored it (baaaaaaaaaaaaaad idea!) simply because I didn't use my fretless too much and even when I did (usually at chruch), I could stay above 5th fret. Now I'm playing it more and more and using the 5 lowest frets and it's annoying me as it's slowing me up. Anyone got any idea how I might correct this? It doesn't seem to be an issue on a fretted bass, and on basses I've tried with different neck widths and shapes. EDIT: I should also add that I have decently big hands so it's not an issue with hand size.
