heh, went into a music store in town today to have a look at some basses when I spotted a fretless on the wall. Only problem it was a righty. I asked one of the guys if they come in lefty (as that is how I play) and he said he'd check. No luck, it was a discontinued line. He suggested I could still play it restrung upside down. So I had a go and it sounded pretty good even though it's a cheap-arse instrument (a 'Legend'). So, I thought, why not, it's only a couple hundred dollars, hence I bought it with some flatwounds. I've just finished restringing it, sounds great, the only problem is the balance, now upside down, wants to make the neck fall to the floor if I don't hold it, being a light bass it's not too bad (anyone have any suggestions?). Other than that, I love fretless!
