check this thing out www.konawalkingstick.com It looks awesome, i figured the EB fellas would take to it better than the DB guys. I posted there too and theres no real hope for a response in that forum. Nylon strings, cheap bass and the strings are only 15 a set. looks like an economical way to get that DB sound. Whaddyas think? Sounds pretty good to me on the clips. Looks nice too. Koa and mango are sure purdy.
