I started playin fretless a few months ago. My band members want me to play it for all the tunes we play. We're just a little cover band playing in local bars.....I just can't see playing the fretless for all the tunes, especially the funky ones. They say the tone is better than my beloved fretted Fenders!! What? It's an SX Franken fretless with a Fender bridge, SD pickups (J PU added) and flats. But it does sound pretty good.
