    Does anyone know where I can find soundclips of Lightwave Basses or any bass fitted with Lightwaves? If you do, could you please tell me where. Thanks.

    Great sounding basses IMO.

    There's a quick intro of how lightwave basses can sound slapped at:

    Fred Hodson on his fretless Zon Lightwave:

    There are some other fingerstyle clips here:

    Note, at least the last one has the earlier version of the lightwave system controls, but it gives you a good idea. I found other samples someplace when I was looking to buy, but can't seem to find them at the moment.

    For what it's worth, I have a Lightwave Saber C. It may be a chore, but I highly advise you not to buy a bass with the Lightwave system without hearing it thru the rigging you're going to play it through first. I'd say that about any bass but Lightwaves are not for everybody and the optic system is not easily fixed or adjusted.
