  1. Check this Ritter out:

    It has a velvet fingerboard. I wondered if were just being descriptive and e-mailed the owner. It's real velvet!

    Wonder how long that would last?

    Anyone else heard of this?
     
  2. All you need is Elvis position markers.

    About 5 minutes with stainless steel roundwounds!

    No - sounds like a very bad idea to me!
     
  4. I know the guy who owns this store, Mr. Giampietro. I am friends with his son that I met at New England Music Camp. He is a bassist and not a guitarist, he wouldn't sell anything that wasn't good. I would actually like to try that bass, it looks pretty nice.
     
  5. Sure are some pretty basses though...........
     
  6. Yeah just what I need to go with my winter Pyjamas there velvet!
