    His basses (and necks) are Warwicks. He had them custom fitted with fretboard LED's by Sim's Custom over in England.

    I was down at Dana B. Goods a few months ago and saw a really cool Fretless thumb 4 with LED's in it- factory installed but I'm not sure about Sam River's bass.

    Warwick definitely doesn't do it. They offer it as an option but it's done by Sims.
     
  8. is there anybody here who has done his neck with leds??

    If you do a search for LEDs, you'll find several threads with TBers talking about their basses with LEDs and pics of many of them. I'm having a set of red ones put in my custom that's being built now.
