    Woot!


    Any opinions on pickups for a fretless 6 stringparallel chamber with TI Jazz flats? I'm thinking P-MM, but haven't really gotten too far. I have a top and fingerboard selected, but I'll keep things a surprise. This'll most likely be after the fanned 7.

    Did the guy who ordered it ask for a matching set of earplugs, fingerweights, and a blindfold as well? :D

    I have dreams of owning a 5 string Fretted (tuned E-C) Parallel Chamber in the future. I was thinking of going with a Dual Coil in the bridge position and a piezo bridge.

    A DC (Nordstrand I'm assuming) is a pretty versatile pickup when you throw in a 3 way switch. The piezo gives the sound of a neck pickup, but a slightly different dynamic. Would you be going with an Audere pre?

    I think piezo and perhaps a Bass Mute would be a good idea in my case.

    Man, I just love the look of a SCB 4-string. :cool:

    Those Ziricote tops in the "News" don't look too bad either!

    Does anybody here have a CB with a Pink Ivory fretboard, pickup covers, etc.? I'm wondering how the coloring holds up over time, and what it looks like after it oxidizes a bit.

    If you don't get a response here, since I think there might have been only one CB with pink ivory, perhaps try the Elrick group. I think there's also a guy with pink ivory.

    Another one already?! ;) Not that I can talk since I'll probably be looking at ordering the fanned 7 in about 6 months or so.
