One-off Gordon Smith fretless SG guitar, plus Guthrie Govan on a Vigier Surfretter fretless guitar
If you've ever considering dipping a toe or two into the world of fretless guitar, then you could do a lot worse than snap up this Gordon Smith SG-styled fretless guitar, currently listed on eBay UK with a starting bid of a very reasonable £299 and with no bids at the time of writing (approx 13 hours to go before end of auction). It's a one-off handcrafted custom build from this acclaimed British maker from Partington, near Manchester. What's not to like?

And while we're on the subject, check out the below video by Guthrie Govan in which he answers all the questions you may have had about playing a fretless guitar but were too afraid to ask. It really is an excellent introduction to the subject.

  1. At last a Vigier on guitarz!Great instruments and not only for shreders. "en years to learn how to use it properly"...Guthrie Govan seems to be on the good way to achieve it. One of the best demos ever

    1. I've had Vigier pics on Guitarz before now, although admittedly as part of longer Guitar Show reports.
