Ok. Theres all of you people around here that are talking about defretting your bass, but I actually did something about mine. Since the frets were dead (since the bass is about 20 years old and they have probley been releveled about a billion times), and the bass was not worth selling (damn BC Rich Warlock never appreciating) I descided to defret the beast. After which I didnt have to level the fretboard (only qualm I had about coating the board with epoxy- its a beatiful brazilian rosewood board), since it was, unlike the frets, in awesome shape. Since I only have one bass, and actually play guitar more (even though Im better at bass, and typically enjoy playing it more- yes you can flame me for being a guitarist if you want, I dont really care). I filled in the frets with a black wood putty (minwax), and coated the fretboard with five coats of epoxy, sanding in between each coat, then finally sanding again. After all of this, it occured to me that I really have no clue on how to optimally set up a fretless bass. I couldnt find any clear help/tips/hints/whatever on the web, so Im turning to you guys. That, and I figure that hearing more than one point of veiw on the matter is a good thing. OK, Im rambling now, so Ill shut up. Basically, I would like info on neck angle, sting height, nut height, how I should adjust the bridge, ect. Any help or tips on the matter would be hugely appreciated.
