Hello all, I (try to) set up my own basses and I do an OK job i think, but I find the setup on my fretless really awkward. The action is very high for a fretless so I find it more difficult to play on than other fretlesses I've played (admittedly not many). I can't get it down further without it all going to pot. I took it to my old bass teacher who's fairly handy with these things and he said that it's not going to get any better. I was just wondering if this a result of it previously being fretted. Is fretless construction inherently different from fretted? I was thinking that fretted basses might have their necks put on at more of an angle to the body or something. If so, is there a way to "de-angle" the neck easily? Because I sure as hell can't afford a new fretless right now! Of course, it could just be that it's a crappy bass (entirely possible)! Anybody got the answer?
