    Man, I really dig these basses!

    I had a chance to buy two different Curbows but they slipped out of my hands. When the right 4 or 5 string comes along, I will certainly make sure to buy it fast.

    theres something i really dig about the curbow design, but I'm not a fan of the headstock. I'd LOVE to get my hands on that bass though!

    from frets ~25-26 that thing looks darn hard to navigate precisely even for someone with skinny fingers (although not as bad as the 40 fret Ritter) I wonder how useful they really are.

    I have two XT-33's and the frets above the 24th are surprisingly easy to navigate. My Curbows are both 5 string XT-33's, one fretted and one fretless and they are simply fantastic!

    I particularly liked the XT-33 for fretless--CurbowPete's rosewood fretless used to be mine, and it was fantastic! Not sure how it would work out for fretted.

    The 7 is just what I need to add to my collection of zebrawood Curbows, though! ;)

    By the way, I really like the new Curbow site design, too, especially the headstock up top! :D
