Fretboard dots are in the aluminum and are located on the fretline as opposed to middle of fret as on fretted models. There is a separate strip of aluminum under the rosewood board which does not appear on fretted models. I'm assuming this is factory but ultimately there is no way to tell for certain. If this started life as a fretted model someone went to considerable time, trouble and expense to turn it fretless. I don't know it's history prior to my purchasing it over a dozen years ago."
