    From my experience, it's quite hard to find them online. They usually have to be custom made for your bass, since too high would result in a carrying tone and too low would result in the strings hitting the fretboard. I guess you could make one yourself or just buy some new frets and shave a couple down and install them.

    A slap plate is a plate of metal that sits on the end of the fretboard on a fretless allowing you to slap without damaging your fretboard.
