Can I jump on this thread? The comments on Fretwell and Lemur have sent me to their websites looking for info on the Engelhardt EG9. Fretwell seems to understand the music I want to play, it sounds like they do a good setup, and they have a good price. (Of course shipping will affect the final price.) Lemur seems to be more Jazz and classical oriented and they are more expensive than Fretwell, but they replace the stained maple fingerboard with ebony and they are within driving distance (so I trade shipping charges for sales tax). Does anyone have any thoughts on these differences? How much does it cost to ship a URB across the country?
