    That's it!!

    I didn't know the ebonol was that bright, but from what you said it sounds like what I want. Only 279.99 from MF ready to play too.

    Whoops, guess we can forget the fretless for the moment. Looks like I'm rejoining the Ric club, lol

    Try some 500k pots .. seems to add a little more ZING to mine.

    Darkstars? But I wanted it to be bright! Got any Brightstars?

    J/K man, anyway the fretless GAS instantly cleared up when I bought the Ric that came up this afternoon on the TB classifieds. I find my GAS pains pretty much go away when my spending money's gone, lol

    Well that's one way to cure it huh?

    We were blown away by the sound and playability of the LightWave Saber VL fretless bass. The closest you'll get to the sound of an upright without actually playing one.

    Personally, I'm going to get one of the fretted models for use in my studio because they sound so great -- I'm not as in need of a fretless for my own recordings.

    Here's our in-depth review:

    A warm upright sound is the complete opposite of what the thread starter is looking for... ;)

    Well, you said the t40 was muddy...those darkstars sound pretty defined to me...could be a fix to that muddy problem. Might make the t40 a player again regardless of the Rick.

    Nice find BTW.
