  • Where to find a fretless guitar or neck

    I'm having trouble finding a fretless guitar or at least a fretless neck. I can't seem to find any on ebay. I am wanting to experiment with more than the standard 12 notes on a guitar, and it seems hard to find. Anyone have any info?

    You could get a regular neck and pull all the frets and replace them with another kind of wood and sand flat . . .

          One nice thing about those, no fret buzz. If you'd like to hear some killer fretless playing check out Ed Degenaro. Fusion madness.
          I'm often amazed, but never surprised.

                  I picked up an old beat guitar for a few buck on craigslist and tore off the frets. It takes some needle nose plyers, some patience and about 40 minutes.  

                  Check out the link below to hear a something that I recorded on a hundred dollar guitar that I removed the frets:

                    Godin makes a fretless nylon string.

                    Vigier makes a great fretless with a metal fretboard. Its like having one giant fret, in terms of tone and sustain.
