    The first one looks especially cool - but that bridge looks kinda starange to me - is it sometihng special like piezos or lightwave?

    I got them from a real swell guy who was most unceremoniously (and unneccesarily) shunned by some ppl. Sorry Vince - I don't know who SleekElite is.

    The AC6 has an ebony bridge with piezos in them. I'm starting to understand why it's considered as the king of fretless basses ;) I love it :D

    Edit: For all those who figure out what I'm talking about, please keep it to yourselves. I don't intend to start anything here. This thread is just to show off my latest acquisitions ;)
