...you never go back. lol, or at least I won't I recently defretted my Gsr200 and today was the first day I got to play it with my band. All i can say is wow. It played and sounded great. I couldn't be happier with it! The only downside is i can tell the strings seem to be scratching the fretboard, so ill just pick up a new fretless neck n ill be good to go! Fretless Bass + Heavy Metal make a wonderful combination.
