sorry, money's a bit tight here in a seasonal-based beach town economy, but I still stand by my purchase! :mrgreen:

Looks sorta like a tap stick (Chapman stick, Warr guitar, etc.)
What was it advertised as?

I have several friends that play tap sticks.
Takes some talent to play one well.
Here's a YouTube video of my good friend Randy Strom playing one:

erm...it was right around $3.5K, pains me to say. But (I justify to myself), it comes with a LOT of extras.

Glad ya like the color! :D It was definitely whitewash cabinet, but I was _really_ close to getting the indigo backlights...

Kevin,
Its a 3/4th scale 8 string electric upright bass. It seemed like it was actually going to be straightforward to play, but unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to tune it up. I had my heart set on learning a German style Arco technique, but that will have to wait.

Ive decided to just wait until I can get a carved upright.

Music-Go-Round sometimes has carved uprights, but if you don't have one near you, shipping is quite costly from them. :shock:

Last major purchase was a dental crown milled from cubic zirconium.

"Boxes with knobs" (as my wife refers to them)- wise was a 108M.

The point of which is...what, now? Isn't CZ weaker than the ceramic dentists normally use? :?

CNC-milled CZ bypasses the casting process so the crowns fit better and the process requires less labor.

My dentist told me he went to a demo where the rep drove a conventional metallic/ceramic crown into a 2x4 with a hammer, shattering the porcelain and driving the metal into the wood. Then the rep drove a CZ crown into the same 2x4 with no damage to it.

My dentist said the next big thing with these new crowns will be digital scanning of the tooth in question, so no more impressions. Mine was done with impressions that were digitally scanned into the mill. In the not-so-distant future the dentist will scan your tooth and send a digital file to the lab. Turnaround time may be cut by as much as half.

Info I found on the interwebs claim the CZ product rivals titanium strength-wise.

Far out, huh?

Cool technology transcends the medium.

BTW next purchase will hopefully be a Steel Guitar Black Box. Or a 106M should that come along about the same time as the necessary flow to complete a transaction.
