i've got an electro-acoustic fretted bass but the frets are of a bad quality and i've got a warwick electric fretted bass also, so i would like to defret my electro-acoustic, but instead of removing all the frets, i was thinking of defretting only the 9 to 22nd frets, is it a good idea? like this, like a double bass i would play walking bass fretted withn 1 to 9 frets and fretless withn 9 to 22, do you think i should defret all my bass or do like this and see if in the future, i prefer defretting all the frets? excuse my english cause i'm a french guy. musically yours. thank you.
