so here i am visiting guitar center, playing a beautiful warwick bass (fretless) and i'm actually getting into it cuz it has my flexibility that i love and sounds just as good. i begin slapping: a sales guy walks by and goes, can you not slap the bass? it'll mess up the fingerboard because the lack of frets makes it vulnerable. so okay, i stop. but question. say i wanted to get a lined fretless bass (to stop buzzing and such) but get a fretless graphite neck. is it a good idea? bad idea? expensive?? someone throw me a bone here, i'm eager to learn.
