I’m by no means an expert on fretless bass as I’ve only been playing a few years fretless. This video is for beginners or any bass player wondering about fretless and the slight differences in dot layout between a fretlined fretless bass and a plainboard fretless. Yes, the dots along the side of the neck are in a DIFFERENT place on a fretlined fretless compared to a plain fretboard fretless. On a plainboard, you play centered exactly over the dot to get a true note. If you play over the dot on a fretlined fretless, you will be totally out of tune … :P If you’re considering getting a fretless, I recommend it, the transition from fretted to fretless isn’t as hard as you might think IMO, they’re a lot of fun and easier on the fingers if you use flatwounds.

I played Fender fretless for years and then I bought a lined Carvin two years ago and it was different for a while.
