  • Well, the mailman came with a big box today...

    ...And inside the box...

    My Rockbass Corvette 5 Fretless!

    I'll whip out my camera tomorrow to take a few pictures, since I know the rules, no pic, no bass...

    Already changed the strings to heavy gauge D'Addario half rounds...

    I actually don't sound too much out of tune, so I'm pretty impressed...

                There she is...
                Me like...

                The black glossy finish gets fingermarks all over it, though...

                Got myself a Boss TU-80 Chromatic tuner yesterday so I can train myself to put my fingers on the right spots (a fretless bass is a lot like a girl for that...).

                And I ordered a .145 string so I can get some decent tension on that B...

                Overall, me very happy !
