Old news but still wonderful.... Too bad he didn't play any fretless guitar on the Aristocrats recording which came out around this time. I also wish I could say why he & BBF didn't want to perform at the Summit this year.....................

"No one's quite sure how to play it yet..."


Nope. No one at all!

"What else can you do with fretless..."

Oh I dunno...Play true harmonic series pitches?

I'm being mean. :P

Overall it's a very nice video and demonstrates how "normal" a fretless guitar can sound and the wonders it can do within 12 tone music.

Sad to hear he's not doing very much music with it. It seems he's got a good handle on chords and scales with it...don't see a reason why he wouldn't.
12 Ain't enough...

Sorry if this has already been posted- a newer video of Guthrie with the later version of the Surfretter, the one with a maple top and the "imetal" fingerboard:
