    I have seen that thing before. It is kind of interesting I guess, but I am not sure that it is very practical.

    I doubt you could switch it quickly enough for live use, and you would have to make some less than ideal compromises as far as set up goes.

    And, since you would still have the same strings, pickups, etc, the bass would sound pretty much the same with either neck.

    Maybe for a studio guy on a budget?

    Just get a fretless for pete's sake!!!!!

    I saw a guy playing a bass with removable fretboards. He used magnets and it only took 20-30 seconds to change necks. It can be done..
