I bought a GSR206 recently, and while I love this bass, there's one thing I wish it had : a fretless neck. Are there any available that will fit? I love the stock neck otherwise. Just wondering if there's any options out there.

Ibanez doesn't make a 6 string fretless, but I'm sure you can find something out there... If you want it bad enough you could always custom build a neck at Warmoth. http://www.warmoth.com/p...mBassNeck.aspx?style=43

I've heard good things and it seems like they'll do pretty much any custom job if you're willing to keep throwing money at them.

Cool. Thanks. I've heard of them before. I'll have to give them a look

Also, if the neck is in good shape, you could make it a fretless! Take out the frets, fill the holes, and sand it smooth. I believe this has been done before.

It would also depend on a little bit of woodworking knowledge to make sure it's done correctly.
