  • Decided To Go Fretless

    Hi Folks,

    I ended up with a freebie Rogue bass. I thought
    about throwing it away because I wouldn't wish
    such a terrible bass on anyone. Then I thought
    about de-fretting.

    Here's a list of upgrades:

    Defretted neck
    Filled slots with wood filler
    Reshaped headstock
    Painted bass and matching headstock (black paint, $6)
    Changed neck radius (912

    nicely done. I would say that is way more than just "polishing a turd".

        Yes. $9 in materials, sure. But how much do you have invested in labor?

        Regardless, it looks very nice.

          Agreed!

          Count me in on this.

          Tabdog, do you have detailed pics that go along with the blow by blow of how you got this job done. It looks good, and I hope you enjoy the benefits of your hard labor.

            The only criticism I would come up with is maybe going with black hardware on the headstock down the road....
