Everyone thanks for checking out. For quite a while I was skeared to tackle for the proverbial fuckup ration of destroying kept putting a toe in the water and now I'm waste deep :) My history is I initially I jumped in to my ebay fretless about a year ago and shaved the nut down quite a bit making it much more playable. That went well. Few months late decided I wanted to experiment making my mandolin fretless, that went well (videos about that on the channel), then I decided to convert this Steinberger copy and dunked my head, so far that has gone well.
Thanks for the comments and stories. Per I knew you had gone the route and done a lot. I think at one of the Y2K's I was fortunate to be at you had a fretless strat if memory serves me, was that one of your creations/experiments?
Rick that sounds really neat re the bass and actually the idea both you and Bill were speaking if I got it, reminds me of the Appalachian banjo concept where I believe the first 5 or 7 are fretless and the upper fretted.
Anyhow I'm jazzed to see how it comes out. I suspect I will desire better electronics than I ordered but to basically get sound I got a generic single coil. The neck right now feels great re the current sand level I have it at for fretless.
I will say there is great therapy in sanding :)
