    >>While he can add a truss rod and graphite stringers to the neck, he prefers not to. <<

    Truss rod optional?!?!?

    He probably prefers not to put a truss rod in because he doesn't know how, or doesn't understand their purpose.

    It says in the review that the neck is thicker than normal and laminated. He also makes upright basses, which also don't have trussrods.

    Most of what I've seen is pretty odd but that doesn't mean the basses can't play well or sound good.

    I was impressed with what he used as side position markers;)

    I actually know the guy that wrote the review. Very nice guy but wouldn't know quality if he slept with it. I learned from the review that he bought one. I can't wait to check it out. I'll let you know what it's really like, even if it's brutal.

    It's a trap!
  10. I like how the sidemarkers are just "guidelines" for the correct notes. Kinda like when somebody told me that stoplights are just "suggestions".
