  1. i just baught some roundwound strings for my fender fretless jazz bass, and it sounds great i love the bright tone of the round wounds, it sounds great on my fretless, but overtime will the strings hurt my neck? im thinking of replaceing it any ways beacuse i dont like it when my bass seems to be out of tune but it is really on were i put my fingers. im thinking of getting the warmoth neck maple and then rosewood board, and then real small frets like the old fenders used to have and then a yellow tint to make it look vintage it will be great!!
  2. well if i were to get a new neck i would frets on it so i dont have to worry if it will hurt my neck in that situation
