    They can always fill the fret slots with something that matches the color of the board. Replacing the entire fretboard just to not have lines? that's overkill. Easier to just find a fretless neck and put it on, or just find an entire fretless bass.

    Emphatic mids of a coated FB really can school
    you intonation-wise. But what you're talking is
