    I want to go fretless with either fret marks or not but alas, my left handedness is telling me I cant. I basically am looking for a fretless neck to go on my MIM jazz bass any help? also what exactly goes into putting on a new neck? I know i have to drill wholes but what else? sorry for the noob questions :bag:

    Hi and welcome to Talk Bass! FWIW I have played bass for a long time and only recently played my first fretless acoustic. It had dots but no fret lines and I was pleasantly pleased that I actually could play it. So for me dots would be important but not fret lines. You should try both before you decide.
    Can't help with the neck replacement. :)

    Try www.warmoth.com for a replacement neck.

    Playing an unlined fretless isn't so bad if it has side dots. I mean with a lined fingerboard the lines aren't always spot on anyway, so you should be using your ears. Muscle memory helps a lot.
