    So I was having some issues converting my Ibanez GSR190 to fretless (discussed over here http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=470461) and have successfully solved my problems and completed the project.

    My issues came when I tried to epoxy the board, and it never set correctly, was sticky and gummy, etc. The last thread has my explaination on that.

    Here is the completed bass:

    Ibanez GSR190, all stock
    Fret holes filled with white PL Professional Wood Filler
    Stained color "ebony" with Cabot Penetrating Wood Stain
    Fender Stainless Flatwounds

    First some soundclips:
