A friend of mine that lives in Texas came to visit and gave me an old Peavey T-40 bass. The story was he came home one night in the early 80’s after reading a story about how Jaco Pastorius pulled all the frets off his bass, filled the slots with marine grade epoxy and started playing fretless. My friend had a few drinks that night and decided if it worked for Jaco it would work for him, so he pulled all of the frets off and then put the bass in the case for 26 years. He owns a few Basses so I told him I could refret it, so he just gave it to me.
