    I was looking at the G&L web site and I didn't see anything in the Tribute L-2500 descriptions that mentioned whether or not they were available fretless. From searching here it seems like most of the options are USA model only, which makes sense in order for them to keep the prices down on that line. But I wasn't able to find anything that said the fretless fingerboard is one of those options or that it's also available on the Tributes.

    Thanks.

    Did a little more searching and I guess I needed to use the right combination of spaces and hyphens to find the answer. This TB thread implies they're not available fretless and describes a professional defret.

    It looks like it was pretty well done and I guess I might be able to buy a used Tribute and have this done for about the cost of a new Tribute. Might be an interesting way to go about it.

    I guess the other option would be to wait a while and hope an interesting (to me) used USA fretless pops up in the classifieds.

    There's a nice, brand new, USA L2500 fretless on ebay with lined ebony board.
    It's a Best Offer with a buy it now for around a thousand.
    I think you could walk away with it for about $900 which would be a great deal.
