Sometimes they do, not always though. I believe Les Claypool's rainbow bass has frets painted on.

I'm having more than enough fretless. Just got my own back and found the only way to get it playable is to remove the paint of the "fret" board.

BBP, I'm just curious, can you elaborate on what you mean by 'playable'?

Actually you can play it, so it's the wrong word. But it's hard to enjoy playing it if your fingers turn jet black as you slide across the fretboard (and accidentally rub your eyes with the paint-stained finger... ouch).

Ah yes, I see. I thought it would be an issue with the intonation or something like that.
