is there any way to turn a fretted bass into a fretless? im having trouble finding a fretless bass that i like and is in my price range (400-600) if i can turn a fretted into a fretless, how do i go about doing it? can i damage the bass in any way? can i do it or does a professional need to do it? if a professional how much will that cost? or you can suggest some fretless basses to look at. im looking for a four string. active or passive doesnt matter. but if i can get an active for under 600 i would be happy. also if i can turn a fretted neck in a fretless does the wood matter. maple, rosewood, ebony?
