As a lot of you know, I am very unhappy with the sound of my Soundgear 6 string. It has a great, stable neck and a wenge fingerboard, as well as a soft maple body, so there is potential there. So, I want to defret it, put an Aggie preamp in it and whatever else that I can do to improve the tone, without going overboard on the $$$. I need a fretless 6 anyway, and this will be the cheapest way to get one. I have always been a fan of the Kahler bridge, but when they were in production, they were too expensive for such a project, and since they ceased production they have been impossible to find. But, I found one on Ebay, and got it for under $40!!! So, this weekend, I am changing out the bridge on the Ibanez. If I can't do it myself, I'll take it to a local shop and pay them to put it on and set up the instrument. I've been quoted $35 for the installation and a complete setup. And what is really cool, the bridge is new. It has never been installed on a bass. Here is a pic.
