i seem to remember some talking about this subject once before, couldn't find the thread. so here is the question. if i defret my bass of all but the bottom 4 frets(19 thru 22) could i still do cool fretless stuff and also get a nasty slapping sound? i have a fretless that i love playing probably more so than my fretted bass, but i love to slap. and i know many people will respond with "you can slap on a fretless" response, in my humble opinion i vastly prefer slapping on my fretted bass. has any one tried this? results?
