I'm considering to buy my first frettless soon and it's a luthier bass too.
You don't have to use just the fretlines if you want a help to begin playing it,you can also put those white dots (at the most important positions , 5th 7th 12th) in the upper side of the neck and use them when you want to hit a certain note in tune.This will avoid those guys that keep buzzing that we are "cheating" at the fretless , blablabla, couse they won't see the dots and the lines.
Remember , Jaco had the lines and nobody dared to say nothing to him .
Sorry bout the bad english!
