okay..so i have a quistion about fretless basses (i kinda feel like i'm asking what the difference is between j pups and p pups, haha, but oh well). i've noticed with a fretless bass i've played in an old guitar store, the neck (finger/fretboard) was dull and felt to me like the neck of a double bass..wich i liked (it had no fret lines). then a few weeks later my favorite guitar store got a fender fretless bass in (some cheap thing). and when i played it, i noticed the neck (finger/fretboard) was smooth and glossy, and i really disliked it (and it had fret lines). now was the original bass just a very old fretless where the fingerboard was worn down..or are fretless basses sold differnetly, some haveing the double bass like finger board..and some being glossy? if they are sold different, what would you call each difference in finger board? is it just that lined basses are glossy and unlined are double bass like?
