I have a fretted $$ 5 Corvette. Love it. Also a pair of Thumbs (fretted and fretless 5s) and I get on far better with the fretless Thumb than the Corvette. The Wenge board, I think. The idea is to swap and then defret the fretted $$.

IMHO learning to play fretless is basically totally simple, if needing a bit of effort, but bassists do that don't they, and is about learning to use your ears, much like the magic things that singers do when they sing blue notes and put in harmonies. You can't be taught this as you are not playing concert pitches all the time, and to analyse that properly takes a Masters Degree in something ... Many fretted players will naturally sharpen notes, bend upwards, and it just adds to that. You don't bend upwards by the same amount every time, do you? It's the ears, mate, the ears. To be honest, though, lines help as well, as guides, and if you defret (which is not too dear) it is cheap to add little ones that one can see, at the top side of the neck. Just have a go. You feel like an idiot for the first couple of weeks as the damn thing will NOT sound right, but persevere. They sound lovely.
