After much hullabaloo, it's done: behold! My fretless Steinberger! I installed some Rio Grande Pitbull pickups, wired them direct to the jack with nothing but a switch between, painted and shielded the control cavity, shielded the pickups, and slapped a fretless Moses neck on it. Man, this thing kicks! It's got tons of mwuah, and since it's a double humbucking P configuration, it doesn't get thin when the bridge pickup is soloed. These pickups kick major ass vs. the EMGs that are in my other bass; much more character, deeper and punchier. They also LOVE all my beloved distorion boxes. The neck is slightly too thin for my tastes (Moses wouldn't make a deeper neck for me), but I imagine I can force myself to get used to it. The neck does feel very nice to the touch though, and sounds good. I'm not sure how I feel about the fretboard - I was expecting a plain black phenolic fingerboard, and they sent me this diamondwood neck instead. It feels good, but the look may take some getting used to. Moses also told me the fretboard edges would be rolled, which they weren't. Overall I was rather non-plussed with Moses' service, but the neck isn't terrible, so I figured I'd keep it until I become a millionaire who can afford to have one built to my specs. And now, the pics! The bass: Neck shots: Bridge shots (for those who are curious about the TransTrem): Control (what little there is) cavity: This bass is going to get me into alot of trouble, methinks. Fretless plus a trem! This opens up a world of out of tune possibilities! This is also my 3000th post, by the way. Rejoice with me, my brothers.
