    This is a new one on me. The concept is -

    "Low B and E strings are on fingerboard with frets and it is possible to play them hard like on any other fret bass. They have firm and precisely pitched tone. Middle A , D and G strings are without frets. These three strings are being mostly used on fretless instruments for their soft, sliding or vibrating sound with trombone character. So in combination with low B , E strings you are able to play firm bass line with the tenor melodies. Last two strings – C and F are with frets again. They simulate sound of the guitar."

    i like the asymptotic pitch ripple on the body between the pickups.

    very quark!
