    I was at a friends house jamming today, and I brought my Ric. We worked on a song for a concert this upcoming friday. I noticed a Squier P-bass leaned against a wall. I checked it out and realized it was fretless. My friend's brother who is also my friend plays bass and defretted it. He also added a layer or two of epoxy. The bass plays amazingly. It gets a real jaco tone which amazed me. I asked if I could borrow it, and he said okay. I've recorded two tracks playing through my Boss DD-6 delay and they sound amazing. I never knew a squier could achieve such a good tone and feel so good. The only actual problem with the bass is that the tuners suck. Has anyone else ever had a good experience with a squier or usually shizzy bass :p?

    Yup! I had a 2001 Anniversary Edition Precision Special that I really liked. It was an exceptional player but I traded for a more upscale bass. Almost wish I had kept it.

    My Essex fretless P has real potential. If i replaced the pickups i bet it would sound amazing, but i dont feel like putting money into it. I just bought it so i could have a fretless to knock around on. Its a great bass though.

    He just ripped out the frets. You can use a butter knife, a nail clipper, some small pliers. He filled the fret holes with wood putty, and then covered the board with a polyurethane substance.
