    yes, absolutely fretless

    the passage from :28 to :32 was all I needed to hear... although the glissando's early sounded like a fretless but might have been a synth, but not from :28 to :32, that was a fretless bass guitar. After listening again the bassist is sliding all over the fret board showing off a bit, in a cool sort of way.

    My ears say yes. And it sounds like an extended range bass as well.

    Definitely a fretless. Probably a 6 string.
