    Fretted... I've got a great fretless already (ZON lightwave)..


    The LED's are suprisingly affordable... Ask dave for a quote... you'll be glad you did ;)


    36" scale shouldn't be too bad... it's still smaller than an upright--besides I have big hands (and my Girlfriend said... AMEN)

    You got me looking at the DP customs page now. I emailed Dave about some options etc.. and I'm now seriously considering a DP fretless in my future. After I get a job of course. I would really like a spalted top and he has a bunch of nice spalted pieces on the special woods page. I don't know though...there's this one piece of figured pau ferro that's lookin' really nice too.

    chump stain - nice lookin' zebrawood. That's really tempting too but I've been havin' GAS for something spalted.

    hey Mark, that sounds like a great recipe!
    I guess I'll finally get to play a DP one of these days. Bring it to the next BS? We should have quite the collection of indie luthier's basses there next time.
