I thought it was pretty cool too, a friend of mine put a link to my ampcast.com site on his site, and this guy @ modernmuscle.net askd him to ask me if it was ok to use the tune...it was a very 'go between' venture...however the video is apparently doing pretty well in the muscle car community and has given me a bit of promotion which is cool...

Glad you enjoyed it!

Out of interest Jeff, what is your muscle car? A hotrod trabant?

Well here we are, 6:45 on saturday morning on memorial day weekend., wanted to give everyone an update...
..
Well the guitar has chgd to a Fernandes Native pro in vintage metallic blue...only because, the Dragonfly pro was on backorder...I'm waiting for it to be shipped...It just left chicago illinois and trucking slowly to the east coast..
..
In the meantime I purchased some strings on Juststrings.com., and I was wondering if anyone had any opinions...I want to stay tuned to standard so I ordered several sets of strings, and was wondering if anyone had any experience w/ fretboard wear etc...I have on the way, a set of d'addario 1/2 wounds (9's), LaBella Flatwounds (9's) and a set of d'addario chromes (10's)..what's everyone's experiences?

Marshall.

I find thicker guages best for fretless as you get more sustain, better tone and it feels easier to play. You don't bend strings, so thicker the better.
I use tens for fretted guitar and 13 flats for fretless. Tomastik are the best I have come across so far.

Thanks Jim,
now are speaking of the tomastik flats, right?
..
do you have any experience w/ 1/2 rounds?..
..
I'm not so much concerned with sustain w/ heavier strings, since I'll have the sustainer on the guitar..however, when playing w/ heavier strings, is the tension the same on a fretless as it is on a fretted?

even half's will grind the fingerboard away after a bit so b e carefull, all your preparation will be wasted...

The tension seems less on a fretless because the action can be set so low, but the flats feel a lot nicer and sound better too. Really warm and fat.

Never bothered with halfs, don't really see the point. Plus less work leveling the board all the time can only be a good thing!

Thanks for the replys..
..
I thought that 1/2 rounds were just ground down round wounds that were just as smooth as flats...interesting..
..
well, I ordered the 10's in the chromes, and 9's in the labella flats, and just in case I also have some 11's in the chromes as well..
..
the main thing is that I don't want to file down the nut to get even lower action b/c this is going to be a first for me in a diy setting for the fretboard..we shall see...I'm trying to make the transition as easy as I can...you know baby steps...
..
It looks like I'll be getting the guit on 6/1..so I'll mark my progress, and put up some pics as I go...I appreciate all the help..

Marshall..
