    I've found my bass and my sound. No need to look anymore. Ibanez BTB. It just works for me. I alreay own several models and am happy with them all. Yet, I still want what I can't have. A fretless BTB. Ibanez does not make. I'm not a luthier, don't have any desire at all to do this myself. I need a pro. I want a pro job. Just bought a btb 5er and Would love to have defretted and a new nut to string with a high c intead of the traditional low b. So what do you think? can anyone recomend someone?
    Thanx Guys

    It is possible to do it yourself- see THIS thread...
     
  3. And you dont need a new nut, The string wont vibrate enough at the nut for it to be noticable.
