hello

i've got some dumbass questions about fretless electric basses...

- is the main purpose of fretless basses just to get a more upright bass tone?

- would buying a fretless bass that has fretlines on the fingerboard be considered "cheating"?

- what would be the best/strongest fingerboard wood used on a fretless bass if you were going to use roundwounds instead of flatwounds? (I've read that roundwounds can really destroy a fretless fingerboard)


.......thanks for your help on this,
scott
