: hey i was just wondering how i can make my fender percision bass a frettless bass
: without hurting the bass
: thanx for the help

i made my fretless bass by prying off the fretts with a small screw diver, then i covered all of the notches where the fretts were and the places that i accidently chipped off a little of the frett board with outdoor wood filler, then i sanded the wood and wood filler down and painted the fretboard with enamel paint(i think that's what it was)then i sanded i down alittle to make it smooth, let the paint sit for a couple of hours, and then i put new flat wound bass strings (do not use round wound). this should work, it worked for me. well any way good luck. tim
