Fretless Electric Neck Conversion

Recommended Posts

Anyone here ever convert a fretted electric guitar to a fretless? I just did this, and I'm basically happy with the sound, but I think there's room for improvement on the action. Does the angle of the neck need to be modified when you do this? My main problem is on the high E and B strings, it doesn't have that zippy sound like the roundwound strings have because the strings are too low to the fretboard between where my finger is and the bridge. If I raise the action to compensate, the action gets to high to play comfortably. This "problem" is mainly from about the 10th fret up on those two strings. Do I need to radius the fretboard more, like a violin?

Anyone have some tips on this?! :D
