Ok awhile ago I was bored and I really wanted a Fretless bass at that moment, And I remembered reading how Jaco Pulled all the frets out of his bass and epoxy coated the fretboard to make a fretless, So i did the same thing with my crappy Peavy bass my friend gave to me. Pulling out the frets was easy because the wood was pretty soft and crappy. Then I just filled the holes with wood glue, Presto Chango I had a fretless bass. I just have a few questions about it. 1: Will the strings rip my fretboard apart since i didnt put any kind of coating over it? 2:what strings will sound best on it? Roundwound or Flatwounds. 3: Has anyone else tried this before? or am i semi-original (since Jaco did it before me).
