I never knew he played fretless. Not that I've listened much since Ten. Good for him.

I don't know that a side-by-side comparison really bears that out.

comment How to play a long sustained note on an electric guitar?
Yes, there's materials and design decisions that make, for example, the Les Paul sustain better than a Stratocaster, but there are things you can do to improve your sustain. There are two unmentioned tricks I can think of to improve your guitar's sustain. First is raising action, and the second is, when you have the strings on and tuned up to standard, loosen the neck bolts, one turn each, then re-tighten. This will pull the neck tighter to your body.

comment Airplane Travel with Washburn travel guitar
I've seen enough online (knowing that the plural of "anecdote" isn't "data") to suspect that it isn't so much the case of "United Breaks Guitars" as "O'Hare Breaks Guitars", but yeah, I don't fly with instruments.
