Hello, I think this is a good idea but I could be very wrong. I was thinking about something today. A fretless bass can be hard to play if you don't have a good ear. But some people really love that fretless sound. So what if instead of the metal frets you had wood frets, I understand they would have to be made of a hardwood such as ebony, and that the strings would wear them out some. But my question is, would it work? Would you still get that fretless sound?
