    I saw a picture one time of a bass that would go fretless at the turn of a dial. It was a headless thing. I am wondering if anyone has tried one, or knows who made them. The dial to change retract the frets was at the top of the neck. Anybody got any clues?

    It was a Steinberger; there's a thread about this bass in the Luthier's forum somewhere.
