    I tried to get some decent screen shots. Basically impossible with the Johnny Cash video though.

  8. Ok....used by many country artists and British post-punks...how cooool! Weird and wonderful instruments. I'm thinking impossible to find collector items and a lot of $$$ in 2010. Oh well...

    Yup... Micro-frets indeed. I've been looking for the Husky for a while. They pop up on ebay every now and then, and go from $900 to $1500.

    I know you're not supposed to post "ugly bass" comments, but....

    I played with a guitarist who had a MicroFrets guitar, He hated it so much that he wire-snipped all the strings off it and dropped it off the stage at the end of the night.

    I can't imagine seeking one of these things... then or now....
