    I really wanna play a bass like that. I'm dying to find out how it sounds.

    Very pretty, though. Where do you rest your thumb?

    That fretted is without a doubt one of the most attractive instruments I have ever laid eyes on.

    Regarding floating thumb: What do you when playing on the B string? I use this technique as well but feel very lost when there isn't something I can rest it on when playing the top string.
     
  5. TBC makes great basses.

    (I do have one).

    Do you have any soundclips of a fretted lightwave bass?

    Thanks.

    If you have to record a new clip, would it be possible to get a clip of the lightwave played with a plectrum?

    I ask because I play with a plectrum almost exclusively these days and a fretted lightwave-equipped bass is one of a number of options I am considering for the future.
