: thanks for the replies! it sounds like it would be an incredible challenge to play.
: if you get a fretless with the fretlines, is this considered "cheating"? wouldn't that be the ideal way to learn to play fretless?
: derek...who, according to my wife, looks, talks, and drinks just like norm. (I'm even an accountant heh)
Cheating? A matter of opinion. Sure, you have the fretlines to help stay in tune but you still get that distinctive fretlesss sound. And isn't that what you're looking for in the first place? Besides, once you get your ear adjusted to fretless, you can always get a new bass without the lines!
