I watched his Deep Purple cover, and man, that bassist stinks. I think Guthrie has a great ear. He seems level headed and aware of his gifts. I'm not sure why he has that bass player, though. Not a single pure tone there.
Frets allow musicians to get away with a lot of slop, and bad habits develop. It is a whole different world when you actually need to be in 'tune' by ear instead of by mechanical design/layout. If it's so simple, I'd like to hear that person reproduce a passage, any passage, with tonal accuracy, or even similarity to that passage, even once.

It will always be a novelty item for a player like me, for the most part. But they're fun for a few minutes. Frank Zappa and Steve Vai have used them. Junior Brown used them before but he invented his own. It's a crazy contraption, check it out sometime.
