: Ok, I know this is gonna sound stupid, but I'd like to know if anyone has any experienced with putting frets on a fretless bass? I've found a great bass at a wonderful price, but it's fretless and I need frets! I know this will probably involve a skilled leuther, but can it be done?

Brian,
It *can be done, but like Datsgor said, it would be a *major* pain in the butt to do.

If you've got a bass with a bolt-on neck, your best bet would be to get a replacement neck with frets, in my ever-so-humble opinion... :-)
