ok so i designed a bass, on paint, its a cross between a yves carbonne jerr dzoid 12 string left handed bass, a carl thompson antimater les claypool 4 string, and a lil bit of my own design, this was mostly just for getting the shape down, i will list specs later

It would be stupid to have such a wide neck fretless, since the only effective playing technique on that kind of bass is tapping.

That sounds great in theory, but i doubt it would be as simple in practice. Still, to each their own, good luck

Just a hint, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get a electric bass to sound like a violin or anything like that. Especially a fretted one.
It's a cool thing to think, but meh, you'd be better of with some kind of multi effect if you want to be a one-man-orchestra.

No, you can't you can only play one at a time, and you can't possibly reach the lower string without some different fingering technique.

do something crazy, and only do frets for half the strings or something. THAT would be awesome.
