I'm thinking of de-fretting my old bass that I need for jazz band and guitar club at my school. What are the advantages and disadvantages? My dad won't let me do it unless he knows, I'll have pictures if I do it.

PS I can play a fretless so don't say it's harder to know where notes are.

the downsides for the playability would be the same as those of a normal fretless bass, so since you can play a normal fretless fine, it'll be just the same to play.
However, depending on what kind of fretboard it has, there's usually a big sustain loss.
