Here's a secret: get some clear scotch tape and a tuner. Use the tuner to find the G on the E string and mark the note placement on the side of the fingerboard--not on the surface of the fingerboard, but on the side closest to you--with a little piece of clear tape. Do it again for A and B on the E string. That should get you most of the way there, and few will notice.Man, I tried one of those for the first time last year.
Intonation is killer hard.
I'd have to saw in some frets if it were mine.
maxvintage- yeah the upright bassists forum wanted to ruin it for me with lessons, too
If I ever get serious to where I want to actually play out, I'll pursue em for sure
