    Congrats on the new axe. I'm kinda looking for a fretless sixer myself. When you give your report, give the nut width, string spacing at bridge, etc if you will. Thanks,

    obviously i cant give you the specifics right now but i will say this is the easiest 6 string i have ever played. mine also has the adjustable wilkinson bridge. i havent descidedif i am in love with the pickups or not yet. the neck plays like a really thin pedulla. it even feels like it has the diamond kote and it's nothin but straight ebony.

    ok "sorry bout the bored bit....i was tired of bein in my office." the BOARD is ebony and a little under 2 inches at the nut and is 3 at the bridge. i plugged it in to my rig...

    DAMN!!!! talk about jaco on roids! no complaints. sounds better than the fodera i played a couple of months before. this thing sounds as good or better than the pedulla, zon, and roscoe i was looking at. this thing has the carvin pre amp but these CANT be the stock pick ups.... they rip. ok goin back to play it some more. i will try to get some pics up...but my camera sux and i want you guys to check ou8t the kick ass flame on the top AND the headstock.

    If there are no pix, then it doesn't count!;)
  10. They just may be the stock pickups... Carvin reworked the pre awhile back and finally got it right. You're gonna be one happy camper!

    Sounds great. I've been looking into a Carvin (maybe at the end of summer). Let's see some pics.
