Help with fretless.

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Stanley Design, Feb 19, 2004.


  1. I know nothing about different style pickups. I just bought a bass to defret and fix up. It came with two regular pickups, the ones that are in the middle and not spaced apart, just a little off set from one another, they aren't soapbar pickups or the skinny ones. Will these work for a fretless? Or do I need new ones? Do I get new ones and just add them? or will I not need these ones? If I need new ones, are they expensive?

    Defret the bass first and then try it out and see how you like the sound.

    Don´t think about changing the pickups right away.

    Have fun with your project :)
