The same way a cello, bass or violin is played. It should sound like this fretless guitar here. W.Jeffrey Jones was the luthier and player on this one. I made all his pickups for a while before the flood.

Lol.. yeah... I have actually played a double bass once in a shop.. and yes I played it really badly :)

 

But I reckon like anything, with enough practice it gets better..

 

 

But then wouldn't a fretless guitar make guitar Tab useless :-k ;)

Guitar tab is useless to me already. But if it were an issue you could have a lined fretless board.

No frets like a violin, cello, or up right bass.... you'll have to learn exact finger placement and have good ears!

 

And all that electronic stuff... doesn't he have a guitar tech or sound guy to do the electronic magic? I don't know what it does but multi-tasking on stage is tough to do.

If by unique you mean incredibly stupid I'd have to agree.
