Maybe the 4-fold combo of
1) Fretless belonging to the bass viola and orchestral strings family, not guitar
2) Bill Wyman and Jaco being bass players
3) Tradition keeping guitarists down
4) No one has called Carvin "with credit card in hand" asking for a HAN fretless guitar.

Very nice of you to say that, "gumbynotpokey"! Almost 3 mos. later and "she" still does it for you? I have to confess, me too! I'm very flattered. I'll tell "her". You can also hear her in the "Carvin It Up" global Carvin jam put together by the amazing "X-Mann"!!

Fretless guitars seem to be getting slightly more popular. I think HAN or metal fingerboards work much better for guitar than raw wood, so Kiesel is who I currently recommend for fretless.

When I was roughly sixteen/seventeen and pretty accomplished, I had a couple guitars and wanted a fretless but couldn't find one and didn't have the money to buy one.

I had this very cool MIJ Vantage Avenger (w/the vintage trem):

and I filed all the frets down by hand with a ragged metal file. My friends thought I was completely nuts. Thankfully I had Strats, Kramers, Ibby's and my old MIJ Les Paul lawsuit edition on hand as well, and I was one year away from my Mark Kiesel masterwork in koa.
Carvin Weaponry:
1985 DC150K (koa) Stereo, M22N/M22SD w/black hardware.
1985 100 Watt X Amp 2 x 12 combo (XV212) upgraded w/ 2 Vintage 30's
...and other gear.
