sorry - i guess i have been missing this post.  We messed around for a while with a fretless bass in early 2004.  I can't remember why but the carbon/glass fingerboard wasn't working out (I think there was some concern about it wearing out and cutting fingers) so we went with a wood fingerboard.  Then US Music bought us, and we have been working on other things as I hope you can tell...

Oh, it's ok.  If it was bugging me that much I would have emailed or called.

I figured there was possibility for an issue with the fretboard, but then I saw that Fernandez does their fretlesses with glass fretboards and got curious.  I hope to hear more about this project in the future!

It seems that it would be as simple as not gluing the frets on, at least to me.  Anyways, not complaining about the company progress!

only if the strings don't splinter the fretboard and get fiberglass and carbon dust everywhere...

I would think that a solid coat of epoxy or another lacquer should be able to prevent any splintering.  Or, just use the same neck design with a phenolic fingerboard and then wrap it up with the carbon fiber.

phenolic is pretty awesome.  my next guitar will have a phenolic board

not nearly as awesome as carbon/glass, but for fretless, that's not an option [:D]
