Today UPS dropped off my fretless Ric that was ordered the first week of last March. It was a long wait...but im pleasantly surprised thus far. It feels great and i have been "noodling" around with it unplugged and i think ill adapt to the fretless quickly. (its the first fretless i have ever owned) Even unplugged this thing has a unique kind of fretless sound...kinda reminds me of a fretted Ric and a fretless Jazz together in one...Smoothness with a clank i suppose? lol Ill be sure to write back in this thread once i hear it plugged in...i havent had the chance yet. Everything from fit to finnish seems A+ so far...just gotta hear her plugged in. And of course..what you all have been waiting for...THE PICS!
