    Fretless questions: I have a Lull Modern 4 with not enough mwah and a Pedulla Buzz with too much. I'm thinking of lowering the action on the Lull and raising it on the Buzz. What do you folks think? Also, even tho the action strings on the Buzz are really set low, it looks like the adjustment screws are all the way out. Are longer ones available?

    thx, Spiketronic

    Mwah is simply the string buzzing against the fingerboard. On a fretless, we like it. On a fretted, we call it buzz.

    Action is the key to mwah. You are right on in your thinking.
