    That is nice. Although I have never played one I like the Le Fay basses.

    I would really like to check one out.

    I agree that fretboard is great.

    Wish they had an version of their site that was in English. Oh well.

    Cool stuff though. What kind of sound do 4 pickups give, or are they more for versatility in any situation?

    Cute fretboard, indeed.

    The idea of an on-off switch below each pup allows for 24 different settings... versatile enough, and possible to grasp... Then they have the EQ as well, just to insure that you never have the same sound twice.

    But what is that black lsotlike thing in front of the neck pickup???

    Well the reason why Bootsy Collins is mentioned is that his basses have four pickups and each one has a seperate output which feeds a differently set amplifier each with their own set of effects, the resulting sound is quite monstrous and typically Bootsy.
