After the rubber fret thing (bad idea to start a thread like that a week after registering), I'm a little wary of asking about this, but here goes... Is it possible that there will ever be a bass that converts from fretted to fretless with the flick of a switch? Would there be any way to put mechanical apparati in the neck that could raise and lower the frets? Graphite would make it less likely to fall apart from not being solid. Maybe a hollow composite neck like BassLab basses? It seems very awkward to have a doubleneck fretted/fretless if there was some way to develop a converting bass. Anyway, let me know your opinions from a luthiery and engineering POV.
