  1. The Brown Santa just delivered my Lightwave Sabre fretless 4. :hyper: I strung it up with new TI Jazz Flats and I'm playing around with the possibilities. WOW! This thing has more voices than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. :bassist:

    Nice ERB in the background ;) I've heard mixed reviews about the lightwaves, they look pretty cool though, got clips?

    Looks cool. Interesting body shape. I usually go for darker basses, but I like it. :bassist:

  9. Hey, Sarge: The pic is in the music room. in the bg are the wife's harp and a dulcimer I made and a bodhran. (we enjoy Celtic music).

    No clips yet,
     

  10. so far, on the E string. I'm debating adding a thumbrest.
     
  11. The pups are in the bridge. It's an infrared optical system.

    that's just WRONG.

    don't you know there's no room for innovation in the guitar industry.

    :p

    nice snag, congrats!

  13. Nice one, so the system is like those Variax Basses of Line 6 ?
     
  14. I don't think so. Line 6 is a synth, I believe. The LW is a bass with the optical and a piezo PuP. Check out these demos:

  15. Speaks the man with the Zon Sonus LW :D ROTFLMAO
