    It's just that most people prefer to play guitar over bass. That would be why there is lot's of guitars and few basses,let alone fretless basses. -Luke
     
  5. Most people like Fretted over Fretless,thats fact...on opinions.

    I don't feel that frets are "training wheels" I have both a fretted and fretless instrument and I love 'em both because of what I get from them...not from which is more difficult ro play.
