    down at the local pawn shop,(cash converters if your in NZ) there is this old crusty fender ripp-off in sun burst, its about 200$ NZ, its called a D something - cant remember) i was thinkin of buyin it and ripping the frets out, i dont know how suitably the wood on the neck is though, its tan coloured, and has like a crusty plastic sort of coat stuff on the front of the neck, i really want a fretless, is it hard to turn a bass into one, i have looked at a few websites, it doesnt seem to hard:confused: maybe harder than it looks,

    is this a wise move? or shud i just save for a cheap fretless???, it would be really cool to make one though.
