As a devoted fretless lover, let me emphatically ask that you PLEASE not mangle a perfectly good fretless by putting frets on it.. There is an overabundance of fretted bases out there to choose from.

My BSR4EG fretless is laquer finished, and will growl your face off.. I prefer the laquer finish because of the feel. If it affects the sound, I can't tell because it's just buttery awesome goodness.
