    Does anyone know if a dual action fretted/fretless neck like the prototype at http://www.steinbergerworld.com/special/xm2fl.htm is commercially available? Although there are plenty of fretted/fretless necks and double necks, I haven't seen others like the xm2 prototype.

    It strikes me that BassLab could modify their hollow necks for this.

    Status Graphite can make a fretted fretless for you.

    0557, Thanks. Do you have any more info? A status fretted/fretless would be a pretty amazing instrument indeed. I've never seen one.

    I have also googled the patent holders, but to no avail.
