Thank you for your comment, and yes, you can easily swapout the strings. That is why I built this one with the bottom on top, for easy access inside. I plan on posting a view of the inside, as you are the THIRD person to request it. LOL!

Thank you John for your comment. I definitely had some wrong preconceptions about fretless, but set up correctly it has a truly unique voice and sort of fun too trying to keep the notes in pitch. The real "Guitar Hero" game. LOL Enjoy
