Can anyone offer advice on the following? I'd like to replace my fretted neck with a fretless neck. I don't want to tear the frets off of my existing neck because I want to keep it and put it back on the bass if I wish. The bass is a '96 Hamer Cruise 5; the body is a lot like a Fender Jazz. I contacted Hamer, and they want to charge an arm and a leg for a custom job. Ideas?
