Im planning to build a neck, and i want it to be fretless because its just soo good looking, and i was wondering will my setup have any major tonal differences?

it'll be on a guitar, and what kind of differences?

It'll much more difficult to play. You'd have to actually intonate each note instead of just slamming a finger down round abouts a fret.

It'd be like playing a 6-string cello or some such.

Without frets, you need to be very accurate on finger placement and have excellent left hand technique.

On a guitar, the frets are placed so when you press down a finger, your finger doesn't determine the pitch, the fret does.

Without frets, your fingers take the place of frets and you have to place you fingers where they would be in tune.

This would make the guitar much harder to play. Chords would be awful, 'specially barre chords.

^However, classical music requires such precision and considers it a fundamental skill.

To all the people saying that fretless would make stuff sound bad/be impossible/whatever, look up Bumblefoot (Aka. Ron Thal). On a side note, a lot of his stuff features lots of weird noises, but you can find him playing blues/rock/chords/shred on Fretless guitars. In other words, it's perfectly possible.

For guitars, some fretless guitars feature metal fretboards for a more similar tone to a fretted instrument. Overall, generally go with harder woods for your fretless FB.
