    Check out Tim Donahue's (not Jerry!) album Voices in the Wind (featuring Paul Rodgers on vocals, Toss Panos on drums and Jaz Lochrie on bass)

    He plays fretless guitar at a level similar to Steve Morse! And he plays lots of chords with flawless intonation!

    Scary, and great music!


    Sorry, the first pic was bigger than it first appeared.

    I think a main reason not many pros play them is because of the difficulty in playing chords with no frets.
