Hi all. Just posting ending to tread I had a while back. I'am very happy to say I'am a new owner of a Renaissance Acoustic bass. 5-string fretless. BEADC. Walnut back, spruce top, fretless fingerboard, lines, and dots. Sunburst finish, with inlays on top. This bass play and sound incredible, right out of the case. Could not be happier, with this bass, it exceeds my expectations. Took it to a bluegrass gig last night, got nothing but complaments, on it's sound and looks. I'd like to personaly thank Rick Turner, and Barry Perlman for standing behind there product, and getting me this bass. Thanks also, for the upgrades you gave to me at your own expence. I'am one happy bassplayer.
