Just curious, but is there a practical or tonal difference between using a fretless guitar and using a slide guitar? I guess the slide has a "scratchier" tone when playing with flat-wound strings, but that's all I can think of.

You can make a fretless sound like slide guitar, but it really is quite different.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

In what way?

Slide gives a lot of harmonic characteristics of whatever you're using as a slide. With glass, you can get a lot of chime like sounds and with metal you can get a heavier sort or for lack of a better word, metallic kind. It's kind of hard to explain. You also get some pretty long sustain if you're doing it well.

Fretless ones though are going to only get the tone from the neck and the fingers. It will probably be more muted than typical playing and definitely more than slide playing just because your fingers absorb more vibrations than a solid fret or slide.
