Hello all

I wanted to let you all know about a fretless guitar I am going to be selling (eventually on Ebay, though I want a good home and thought I would post here first). The guitar is a clone of Ned Evett's instrument: a Fernandez Native Pro, with a sustainer pick-up in the neck position and an Alan Holdsworth SD in the bridge position. It has been retro-fitted with a mirrored-glass fingerboard. It is a great guitar, and I am only selling to re-stock my own gear. I have ended up playing my fretless strat more than any other guitar I have, so I want to move this guitar along to a "kindered spirit." The guitar was set-up and fine-tuned by Eric Miller, one of the great guitar techs in the US. It is ready to roll. I would like to get $1500 for it, and I will entertain offers.

Thanks, please contact me via email (tbaker@drizzle.com) for more info or to make an offer.

Tom, is that the guitar Ned is playing in Unfretted's gallery the first pic?

Tom, I wish I had the flow but not right now. Thanks for the heads though, & I'll pass it around.

J-
Yes it is the same one in the pictures (minus the cool red-guy sticker)

M-
No problem. If you all could pass the word, that would be great.

Z-
If you want to know more, send me an email. I could also post some pics if it would be helpful (I just have to borrow a dig camera...)

Thanks all, pass the word.

Cheers!

I will post some more recent shots this week. The same style can be seen on this site Unfretted's gallery pictures for Ned Evett.

Cheers!

Sorry Jeff, no free vibraphone. It is the coolest instrument though, it is a microtonal vibe based on the tuning systems of Harry Partch (the Utonal system) and is a lot of fun to play with. We have had some pieces written for the microtonal vibe and fretless guitar...it is great to try and play in those scales, a real ear-bender.

Ok. Next week I will have a little "spare" time and I will post some clips of the microtonal vibe and fretless guitar duo.

AND get some more pics of the glass guitar up for y'all to see.
