Here, I found this late Foundation with VFL pickups and ordered it. You know that feeling when it shows up, and there's that big box on the porch: "Yes!" So I drag it inside, lift it out of the box, peel away the bubble wrap and realize there are no frets. "My God," I thought. "What is this?" At first I wanted to return it, but I started playing with it and I like it. I has flatwounds and I have never had those before. There are less overtones and it doesn't sound like a tank, so it's different. It also has kind of a natural chorus sometimes. It has lines on the fingerboard, so I think it was made as a fretless and not a conversion. I don't care about mwah, I just like the way it sounds without all the clanking. I'm pretty bad anyway so who knows. Geezer Butler said he played a fretless Rickenbacker on Johnny Blade (Never Say Die), which I like. You can hear it on the part where the song slows down in the middle. He does this descending slide sometimes instead of following the guitar riff. Now I have to keep it and play that song. The End.
