    Just got a Brice HXB 5 Fretless for Christmas:)
    I want to order a sanding block to use on it -
    anybody know the radius of these?


    Looks to be 12 inch:confused:

    Was also thinking about giving it a gloss nitro coat
    (the body)
    to bring out the figure of the wood - but not sure
    if that is an oiled finish or an satin acrylic on this baby.

    I'd say 12 also, or about the same as a Precision!
  3. Email them, very helpful guys.

    Yes indeed they are:)
    But they said they'd have to get back to me on that
    which I found surprising:eyebrow:
    I guess not many people ask!

    I was having setup problems initially and emailed them
    about an exchange/return - they were totally nice,
    but only after a few emails did they mention this bass
    has a double action truss rod:hyper:
    Which is unusual in this price class:cool:
    Once I knew that - setup was a do-able.

    I suggested they include more bass wonk /geek info
    on their webpages to make their (and our) life easier.
    Like: radius of neck, type/composition of finish,
    composition of the nut etc. :D

    I would LUV a Brice Z5 in Trans Green - a lined fretless

    Got a reply from Rondo - Radius is 13...Not as easy to find a block for!
