    Hey that is quite familiar.

    Possibly because it is mine.

    FoxfireBass can vouch, althought I don't know if he even realizes I am a member here, with the different name and all. I'm glad you find it of use.

    As the sig says, I buy it wholesale from a local distributor by the case. Wake up almost every day with one.

  7. You do realize the inherent harm to your body caused by those things is exponential if you drink them that much, right?

    What is the fretless bass strung with? How does it hold up to wear?

    It's holding up alright for now. I've got it strung BEAD and I'm working the truss rod down so that I can get lower action. It's probably not as tough as epoxy, but it worked great, and looks good. There's only slight marking, but that's cuz I only gave it a day to dry on the final coat, and I probably should let it be a bit longer.

    I'm gonna string it tenor ADGC with some low action and nickels to get some sweet mwah.
