    Musician's worst friend as opposed to man's best friend. Woof.

    Sorry but it already came-- oops!

    This TC Electronic RH450 was selling at a price I couldn't refuse and then they took and additional 10% off for fitting in the category of customer returns, blemished, or mfg refurbished. When I asked them what the deal was, the said in this case it was merely open box with the amp still sealed in it's plastic wrapper ... and comes with full mfg warranty and free shipping. So that was cool-- I got if from Music Group Services Nevada aka musicgroup1 on eBay.

    So, I have been contemplating a 6 string fretless for a while and finally have a plan in place. I managed to pick up a Korean pro series corvette, 6 string in black oil finish. I will be replacing all the chrome hardware to black.

    It is fretted but I have it currently at a luthiers getting the fretboard removed and replaced with a New Zealand native hard wood called "Black Maire" Should have it back in about a week. Will post pics when I get it.

    The black maire is similar density to Ebony and has some interesting grain. Should look killer!

    Here is a pic of the grain of the wood.

    :p Currently at my luthier’s shop being routed to add a J pickup in the bridge position with MEC Gold P/J pickups to be installed along with a 3-knob Aguilar OBP-2 preamp. I will post updated pics once completed. :)

    Update on my incoming fretless. The new board is on, the dots are done and this just needs the neck radiused and oil finish. That grain is going to look fab!

    Nice one :)

    I just bought a Neuser Crusade. It is already there but the seller didn't mentioned the orginal bridge is missing.
    So incoming is a Neuser Bridge (Abm Monorail Fretless) from the Netherlands ;)
