So close, and yet so far from being my cup of tea (I pretty much play exclusively in the middle/neck positions when playing fretless) but I give Ibanez props for putting this out there.

And DAMN, this guy’s technique. It’s out of this world. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.

(Although, “you’ll never hit a wrong [fretless] note?” Overselling it a bit, buddy.)
