I agree with AD, and MrM's comment about straight board. I set my neck and saddles just low enough that the bass doesn't buzz.
I fret the notes centrally on the spots - don't know if this is correct but it seems to work.
Group 3 flats on mine but I agree roundwounds add to the mwah factor a little more - we've had this discussion before so I know it won't get universal approval but for me the downside is they're less fretboard friendly in terms of wear (I'm not talking a little wear here - mine is quite badly damaged by previous use - still plays OK but a re-shoot will cost me £70 - how many re-shoots before you need a new board? Who knows but my fretless has a stunning figured maple neck and really nice looking board so the thought of ever having to replace them is not something I want to have to think about).
