    Pretty cool....for a guitar;) . I like it though. Are you into the Screaming Headless Torso's at all? Fuze (their guitarist/mastermind) plays quite a bit of fretless guitar. He's the only cat that I know of that plays one....well besides you now:p .

    Pat Metheny uses a fretless guitar on the song "Imaginary Day" from the album of the same name.

    thanks guys,
    That was my first bass.
    This one was a copy as you can see. I wanted to try and build something that I admired...and that
    I could take measurements off of.

    I have more coming soon of my own design.

    Stroy, that is awesome! I had no idea you built that yourself, I just flipped through, and assumed it was a Fodera.

    Congrats on a job well done!
