...and it really wasn't all that hard, lol, and it was unlined no less! I almost felt like I was half decent bass player because I could hit my notes accurately . It was a Ken Smith, not sure what model though. I guess the fingerboard was oil rubbed because it definitely wasn't epoxy, it reminded me of an upright in feel and sound. I was actually thinking about getting a fretless but now I figure I probably won't any time soon. It wasn't because it was a bad experience, but just something that i felt wasn't "me", ya' know? Maybe a little while down the road i'll change my mind. I still have yet to try a fretless bass with an epoxied board, which i hear can make quite a difference. How did you guys feel when you first tried a fretless?
