Not that I'd ever be able to afford one, but I stumbled on Radelet's Web site and was intrigued by what I saw. Certainly a non-traditional design, replete with adjustable neck. According to the bio, he studied with Jim Ham, who I understand also builds basses with adjustable necks. Anyone ever seen/heard one of these Ham or Radelet basses? What's hard to believe is (according to the site)that after studying bass-building for less than a year, Radelet got a commission from the Karr foundation. Maybe there's a large part of the story that's missing, but to me that's the equivalent of going from weekend plank-spanker to winning the ISB competition in 12 months. I know that none of us has crystal balls, but is this kind of design a wave of the future, poised to succeed hundreds years of commonly accepted luthier practices? Or is this a "concept car?" Does acceptance by someone like help Karr open the door?
