    Whatever you do, don't make him break 1M views, or Paul's gonna have to sign the headstock...

    That’s really cool.
    I would have to tap into my long-lost violin skills and techniques for this one. That’s the type of vibrato you need for this. Kind of like a circular movement.
    Those faux-slide sounds are just fantastic.

    Cool! When I read the title, I thought maybe it was fretted for three strings, and three were fretless. The way it was actually done makes much more sense.

    Love this! I'm intrigued by fretless guitars, but I feel like I need to have at least a quarter of the skill of Guthrie Govan to make it work. And I don't.

    Really cool that he composed something to show off the guitar.

    The way Paul interacts with people in moments like these is one of the reasons that makes me happy to be able to own a PRS while the brand's founder is alive, healthy and creative.

    You should. It’s very cool, but not for sloppy fingers.

    That was a ton of fun. Sort of a Steve Vai vibe.

    I'm a way too sloppy player for that
    but I still like the idea a whole lot.

    I always wanted a half-fretless bass guitar, but never though of a half-fretless guitar.

    You know, I'm surprised nobody has made reference yet to the Scott Ian anti-noodling-guitar-solo guitar:

    Yes, this. PRSh comes across in every single interaction as an honestly nice, creative, strong-willed, fun guy. My wife and I met him at Experience 2018, and she was blown away by his "presence" and friendly demeanor. He is one of those people that commands a room by just entering it, but is not a jerk about it.
