1 Groover McTube 1 year ago So here's the deal. I backed a Kickstarter project for a new guitar manufacturer back in September (Retronix). They finally came out with pictures of the prototypes and are ready to accept orders. Here's a pic of the prototype R-800B. I'm going with it in Surf Green (as in the pic). Not sure whether I will go with redwood or maple for the fretboard, but other than that I should have a new bass sometime in late March/early April. This should be pretty a pretty versatile bass, Strat-like pickup configuration and a 5-way switch and a way cool Jetson's vibe.
