Hello there. I'm new here, been lurkin for a while though. My name is Michael (you can call me Mike) and I'm an american born korean who lived all of his life in Argentina. A nice mix eh? Yeah I know you'd like to see my bass, right? That's GAS for us bass players... PEDULLA THUNDERBOLT 1994 I love my Pedulla Thunderbolt but I just need a fretless bass after playing pizzicato style on my cello. So a friend of my older brother, who's a luthier, is making a fretless bass for me. Carl Thompson styled, neck-thru, lined ebony fingerboard, birdseye maple for neck, cocobolo for the top... not sure about the rest of the woods. I was thinking on DiMarzio Ultra Jazz for pups. Here are some pics of a bass he made so you get an idea of how he works: http://www.chicasybajos.com.ar/displayimage.php?album=8&pos=5 Anyways, I was thinkin of having it made 32" scale since I'm having some problems with my hands. I've been to the doctor and I think I'm beggining to have CTS (I know, I'll keep away from the keyboard!). Is it worth it? I mean, is the sound much worse than a regular 34" scale bass? Keep in mind it's a fretless. One last question: does anybody know about the type of sound this kind of bridge gives to the bass? Thanks.
