    I did a search on this but didnt get much for a replies.

    Is it difficult to make a frettless a fretted bass?? Does the process vary alot from working on a raw neck?

    Yes, it is difficult. Or should I say, a very particular work.

    You need to place the frets very, very accurately, to secure them well into the board, and then adjust the heights of the frets very carefully.

    In my mind, it is the essance of patience to fix the frets....
