    Its the fanned fretboard. Research Dingwall guitars, and Novax fretboards. It does make sense.

    If you look closer you'll see all "frets" (or fret lines rather as it's a fretless) are angled. It's the Novax fanned fret system, search for Novax if you want to read more about it.

    EDIT: :p Oh man, am I slow or what! Three posts come in while I worry about my spelling... :bassist:
