Just ordered my new fretless

    Just got back from Fury talking with Glenn and picking out wood for the new bass. We pitch matched neck and body as best we could and got it quite close. Since there is so much mass in Fury necks and bridges we decided to go with the lighest weight maple we could find. This thing is going to be absolutely punchy. My other fretless is quite mellow and subtle. Hopefully this one will be the most rude and obnoxious fretless ever. Depending on when the paint booth run finishes up I should be playing my baby in about 70 days. The wait begins

    The specs,

    Body: Eastern hard maple center with soft maple wings

    Neck: very subtle flame on hard maple

    Finish: [size=-1]Charcoal Grey Metallic[/size]

    Scale: 31.640"

    Fingerboard: Very dark Pau Ferro with Ebony lines. (creates a nice effect with the board)

    Tuners: Hipshot ultralight

    Other options: Drop D tailpiece, Ramp, Custom wound pickups (hotter neck, same bridge as my others)

    This is going to be absolutely killer. The finish will be close to this guitar. (bad lighting)
