I have only made one of these fretless guys, and that was a special order. I was inspired by a video I stumbled across of a traditional fretless banjolele. So here is the first fretless gourd banjolele uke 17″ scale. You say… no way without frets. I have on the side ,inlayed “fret” dots , so you have a guide for finger placement . Fretless is really going to give you that old- timey sound. Pickup my Uke fiddle songbooks ( in accessories) and you are old-time’in it.
