    Like the subject says and can I see a picture of it please?

    Also do they have the same glossy fretboard like the fretted models do?

    Last fretless Ric I saw belonged to Dave Brubeck's son Chris. That was a long time ago.

    I've played a fretless Cheyenne 4 string, with a pau ferro fretboard. I'm not sure it was 100 % original, but it sounded great.
