I have a Soundgear 5-string fretless. Recently I have been contemplating the possibilities of installing/fabricating an extension similar to that on an upright bass. Except mine would go to low A, possibly even G. When I play, I like the tension and clarity of those notes when I'm tuned to B, but when I tune to A, I get the note A, but lose the tension and some tone. Plus, I end up tuning back and forth between the two quite a bit. My idea involves cutting out the section of the nut that is under the B string and then finding a strip of rosewood and then putting a wedge-shaped shim underneath it and against the headstock to create the extension of that part of the fingerboard. I know I will need to relocate the tuning machine, and I haven't figured that out yet. Is this feasible? Has anyone ever thought about this before?
