It sounds and plays a lot different than a fretted bass. I don't think it's supposed to sound like an upright exactly, just have some similar qualities. It's a preference thing really. Fretless has it's own set of difficulties/challenges, such as unlined fingerboards (sometimes) and the need to be very careful of where you put your fingers to get the proper tone (intonation). -B

: hey I got an incredibly stupid question...

: can someone tell me the "purpose" of the fretless electric bass?

: is it just to "sound" like an upright bass?

: thanks from a beginner!
