The Top Ten
Master of bass players. Playing guitar/bass with frets isn't very easy. And its much harder playing bass/guitar without frets. Really great! - zxm

No, it's not John Petrucci of Dream Theater! Their names only look similar. - Metal_Treasure
I didn't know he played without frets - OnionLists
Yes, he plays upright bass. - zxm
Yes, he sometimes plays frettless bass but he shouldn't be very high on this list because he can't be called a "master" of fretless playing. - Metal_Treasure
He plays for a famous band (Pearl Jam) but I didn't put him very high because he plays the frettless bass like a fretted one and he rarely employs specific fretless techniques.
I guess he uses frettless bass for its different sound and not so much for its potential in terms of different techniques. - Metal_Treasure
He's a left-handed player. - Metal_Treasure
