    Im new with the fretless and im looking for good songs, i think that this bassist is using a fretless do you guys agree? it´s a band from Span:

  2. 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.

    Definitely a fretless. Probably a 6 string.
