Still have the guitar, so I guess it is going slow. I am in no hurry though. I have not posted at Ebay yet, mostly because of time. Things are c-r-a-z-y right now. I would still like to sell it, but will be patient and wait for the right person! You can remove the post if you want to...

Not at all Tom, I'm sure things will work out fine. Nice to hear you are busy, don't forget to let me know news etc. for the website. Any new CD's planned? Or perhaps you are busy with commissions? - Jeff

So Tom, how is it with Legato & Chords?
I have become abit more interested over time now. I also wish we lived near each other so I could try it out first.

Michael

the legato is great, especially with the built in sustainer. The sustainer pick-up, when not turned on but when selected, gives a pretty good single coil sound. The bridge position pickup is a replacement (Holdsworth Seymour Duncan) and has a lot of power. Chords are the same as I have experienced on my other fretless guitars, the fingerboard is maybe slightly wider than my strat, but the setup is not too slinky and the chords sound pretty good.

Maybe you will be out on the west coast sometime soon and could give it a ride.

Well, I have not listed the guitar anywhere, and it is still getting plenty of playing here. I am super busy, playing a lot and writing like crazy, so I am not in a big hurry to sell the glass guitar. I suppose I will hang on to it, and see what happens.

Hope everyone is well!

I think its better to hang on to the guitar. A friend once begged me to sell him my red Hofner Verithin, which I did for 30 quid on the proviso he would sell it me back if he lost interest. A short ime later he sold it to a s/h shop. It would be worth around 800 quid nowadays, so I regret selling it, even though it was not a particularly great guitar, I get attached to them you know!

If you are writing like crazy - are there new CDs about to burst from the Baker stable? - Jeff

J-

Yes, my past is littered with regret over selling guitars that I wish I still owned. Usually not because they are valuable, but because they have a certain playablity that is unique to each instrument.

Lots of projects in the works. I am finishing the mix on a new CD (out in Jan maybe) of a "requieum/concerto" for fretless guitar. The "orchestra" is a computer-generated score, from samples of a solo bass CD. It is a big project, but it is going well.

I have also been working on other pieces: a clarinet piece (two players each playing two clarinets), a percussion duo for six cymbals, and a piano concerto (for two pianos and orchestra that is all written in quarter-tones with one of pianos tuned a quarter-tone flat).

I have two other "fretless" projects in the works - a dvd of a live performance from this summer, and a new band (quartet with clarinet, drums, bass and fretless guitar). I am writing material for the band, and editing the dvd. I am also starting a new top-secret project with Franck Vigroux, which should prove to be exciting, and writing tunes for a second solo record all based on stories by Italo Calvino.

Who has time to sell guitars anyway?

(Franck is coming here in Feb, we are going to do a show together here in Seattle which should be very fun...)

Talk about breaking news! You are a busy boy.
The CD for fretless sounds interesting but the quartertone piano project has stunned me completely. I think I have the logostics sorted in my head but that should be quite something.
Very interested in the collaboration with Franck, does top secret mean he hasn't told Ned yet?
You really must do a live recording of the concert, just the thing to cheer everyone up after a long winter.

Calvino wrote the amazing book "Invisible Cities", highly recommended. Also he wrote two of my favorite short books: Cosmocomics, and T-Zero. The english translations I have are very well done (from what I can tell from my VERY limited Italian).

Buildings, imaginary cities, protoplasm...whatever is handy!
