    After a correct setup, most basses should not buzz, if they do lighten your touch a little.

    I would go with a P bass. Cheap, reliable, good tone for multiple styles.

    Either that or perhaps a straight up trade with someone looking to go fretless. Or just swap necks.

    I think someone's selling a Warmoth neck in the classifieds.

    PS if you do a search here on TB you can get alot of info on Epiphone Jack Casady Bass.
     
  10. I'd say sell yours and buy a used fretted one.

    check evil-bay for used necks... there are plenty of deals to be had. That takes care of number one, and I think I would skip 2 and 3 and carry on with anything #4 and up...
