Hey guys. I bought one of those 5-string Gary Willis Ibanez sigs recently because it's awesome. Matte black gets me every time. I've also been wanting to learn the fretless trade for a long time now. It definitely requires a more refined touch than picking on my Jazz demands, I tell ya. Here's how I'm progressing: I've sort of surprised myself with how much I'm into it. I've always found fretless playing to be a bit cheesy, really.
