    i'm going to test drive this thing this weekend. i'm sure it will still be there. shoot it's been there for nearly a year! i've been looking into going the no speed bump route for a while now, but it's always intimidated the heck outta me. oh well...here we go ;) also i'm looking into mtd kingstons as a low end of the scale...as far as price goes anyway. i've heard pretty good stuff hee hee i really have no idea what to expect, but it should be fun trying anyway.

    I love the look of that bass! I always check to see if it's still there, not that I could buy it. Let us know how you like it.

    36" scale could be very interesting on an unlined fretless if you are not used to it. Maybe not, though.

    hee hee....i've never played a fretless before anyway, so it'll be a monster of a boat paddle at any rate. i'll let you guys know what i think

    I've looked at that one online many a time. A beautiful piece of work, for sure. Tell us if it sounds as great as it looks Neptoon!!

    The bass is beautiful.

    FWIW I had no trouble adjusting to my first 35" scale bass as a 5 string fretless. I don't know about 36" though.

    Must be tough finding strings for that one.

    dude, i'm a 3 foot tall munchkin, but remember when you add inches to scale length, say two of 'em, you're adding one inch to the nut side and one inch to the bridge side. at any rate, though, i'm currently on my fourth warwick thumb bass, and if you've played those, you're used to reaching way out due to the way the short upper horn. i don't think it will be too bad...i hope not, anyway.

    i dunno, though....maybe the 36" scale length is why this bass has been there for nearly a year...hee hee

    I've been drooling over that very bass for the last 6 months. Let me know how she handles.

    So neptoon, you never posted your thoughts on that one. . . ? or did I miss it? :)

    Funny: it's gone from BNW, but it's at Bass Central now! For $3k again! :confused:
