: : I am seriously considering purchasing a fretless bass, and I am a HUGE fan of slap bass (its quite honestly my best talent on bass). I've heard more than once that fretless basses make lousy basses for slap. Is this true? If so, is it always true or not necessarily? Are there fretless basses that are good for slap? If so, can I get some brands? If anyone could give me some input, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

: I've heard that if you add a brass bar at the end of the fingerboard on a fretless bass it gives the bass a nice slap sound. Never tried it though.

claypool slaps on a fretless, so think about that
