Nice video ... never seen such a thing.
No more intonation worries!
Ha! You wish. Those with a good ear will be ok but considering how many guitarists already play out of tune with frets, removing frets mean they will sound even worse.
I tried one once. I also tried violin. I was surprised that I found the intonation ok for single line melodies (after playing & teaching for decades). But chords on the fretless guitar were near impossible (because shapes like A major cannot be stacked slightly diagonally as we do on fretted guitar) - which raises my admiration for violin players playing the Bach sonatas & partitas a hundred fold!
