I've been toying with the idea of a fretless, possibly based off a jazz or variant. How difficult to defret yourself? better off to shop for a fretless bass? I have a Fender Aerodyne P/J that I don't play much any more, plays great but since I bought my Stingray the Fender sits in the closet. I think I might have pulled it out twice in the past 6 months. Fender needs a bridge, and the stock bridge is recessed into the body, making replacement a problem unless its a stock type. I've also eyed an Ibanez SR1200 that's at a local shop used, with the big single Nordstrand pups. sounds great and I think it would make an awesome fretless. Maybe sell the fender to fund the ibby? What would you all reccomend?
