    Hey Fred,

    I've been looking at those lightwave fretless from the Bass Company for awhile. How does it compares to your new Zon and Brubaker fretless? Sure like to get one of those!

    BTW, she is beautiful! How's the Mawhhh factor? 1-10?

    That is a great looking bass. It is obvious from the pics that it is a very high quality bass. How is the tone variation with the lightwave system being that it doesn't have two pickups to pan to and from?

    I've always wondered what the headstocks of the Bass Company basses looked like.

    Very sweet bass.



    Fred---will you adopt me?;)

    thats a sweet bass, its weird though not seeing the pickups in the traditional place in the traditional way.
     
  16. Absolutely beautiful. I would love to try a Lightwave fretless, and I am nowhere near the point of playing unlines fretless.

    I know that ideally the smooth, continuous fretboard is what you want, but it's not for me yet....

    I think you need a JP or an FBB.

    I suppose an F bass would be most appropriate, but we should support the indies too.

    I still want to be the first JP owner over here, but I've got one more FBB to go...

    Very nice. Only thing : I don't know about the recharger connection being on the top. They should have done like the Zons (on the bottom by the input jack)...
    Thread hijack : :bag:
    I think there's a nice little Zon lightwave in the for sale forum . :( ;)
