So...does this sound like a good idea?

  1. My friend has a Fender P-Bass or something like that and what I plan on doing, since he never plays (I visited after 2 months since the last time I visited, and he said "I haven't touched this thing since last time you were here.) and talks of taking up keyboard, is offering him 50 dollars and getting his bass. (I already own one) Then I plan on defretting it. It'd be more of a learning experience, plus it'd be nice to mess around with a fretless. I have a sodering iron and plenty of patience.

    I know there are comprehensive guides and there was one linked on here. I'll find it. I know it'll mostly be a crap bass, but I'm interested in defretting a bass, and it's a cheap piece of crap so hey, who cares?

    Well, I say go for it - worst comes to worst you could always get a new neck (if its a Pbass, then well its still worth something)

    Go for it. I often buy basses for $50 without thinking.

    If you're thinking about it, you're probably strapped for cash.

    Go for it ;)
  4. Yeah. My cheap teenage mind says "MONEY, EXPERIENCE, FRETLESS" *drool*
