    As Manol so eloquently put it :rolleyes:, the search function is a valuable resource. You can usually find more information that way than you would in a single thread.

    I would try a search in Titles Only in the Basses forum, for something like "mim AND mia" (these terms are generally applied exclusively to Fender). :)

    Are they actually retractable though? I think they actually roll the fret to a flat side. I could be wrong though.
