Okay, this is a similar subject to my other post, but it's a little different. My dad, jokingly suggested that I just pry the frets out of a really cheap bass...and I know that Jaco did, but how well does it actually work? (Side note - Why do fretless basses cost more? It represents LESS work) Has anybody yanked the frets out of a bass while not under the influence of drugs? What does it do to the fretboard, other than make little valleys?
