    I've been reading about these and passing them up every time they come up for sale, but I'm realllllly curious..

    do they get the mwah-sweetness a fretless provides?
    of the folks out there who've tried them, what is your take on it?
    can u be as smooth and fluid on these?
    I was wondering if u can slide around and be as loose with those grooves there..

    saw a few youtube vids, they sound like muted fretlesses, nothing there that was clear enough to really get the idea of what's going on..do they have that sustain and sweet tone like a good fretless ?

    of all the stuff i saw online, it was still a bit unclear to me.

    nice. rich tone. and your intonation sounds pretty spot-on,
    I guess the grooves solve that problem for a lot of players

    Yeah I am a self proclaimed horrible fretless player. Not bad sounding on a fretgroove though!
