: just kidding, but...
: seriously, we got fretless basses why not fretless GUITARS? how come nobody makes these?
: I know they'd be harder than hell to play, but wouldn't the tone be worth it?
: just curious
>>> Hi Samantha,
I actually saw a fretless guitar about 20 years ago at the NAMM
show, it was kinda cool for making weird effects. They had it
hooked up to a pedalboard with everything but the proverbial
kitchen sink. You couldn't really do much with it chord-wise,
it was impossible to get all the notes in tune. I seem to
recall Robert Fripp mentioning something about a fretless
guitar he was fooling around with, but I'm not sure if he ever
recording anything with it....I'll just stick to my Stratocasters
