Dear Dave,

I am the proud of owner of one of your basses. I bought it from Steve Carriere who bought it from Brian Gingrich, so I guess itís one of the first ones. I wanted to write a fan letter: this bass is amazing.

It is the fourth fretless I have owned. The first was a Fender p/j that I built out of parts--a nice bass which was stolen. The second was a custom made number made by a local luthier. The third was an Ernie Ball MusicMan Sterling. And now I have yours.

Itís the first fretless that I truly want to play and look forward to occasions when I can use it. As you might know, I am a free-lance and studio player and have always felt the need to have a fretless on hand.

But given a choice, I would always play a fretted bass. A lot of gigs that I play have a ďjazz setĒ where we play standards for the first hour. The Wendler sounds wonderful there. I also have brought it to my regular worship gig at my synagogue and used it with an Israeli folk music band that I play with.

And of course I have used it on a jazz gig, only switching back to fretted for the funk tunes. Everyone who has heard it and seen it has made very favorable comments. Itís easy to play, looks good, and sounds wonderful.

Whatís not to like?

I have been to a lot of NAMM shows and music stores and have played other basses that are trying for the same effect, but yours actually does it.

Others I have played: Rob Allen, Godin, Rick Turner, Azola, Viellete And many ABGís from Taylor on down.

Feel free to quote me!

I like the simplicity of controls as well: I just plug in and play. Iím assuming there is a piezo hidden somewhere under the other pickup and they are mixed together in a permanent setting. Maybe there isnít, but however you did it, you did it right.

I wish you much success in your instrument building and hope to meet you some day. Kansas is one state I have never been in.

Best wishes,

I really love the guitar; sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you. I have many other guitars and have been playing the electroCoustic exclusively. I took it down to Guitar Center (I have lots of friends there including the store and district managers) Let them check it out and they were blown away. I did a CD using it and have shown several people who are also interested in more info on the guitar. I am going to start playing out more and hopefully that will spark even more interest. I am really impressed and just wanted to drop you a line letting you know the guitar has been a real hit around here...Thanks once again. It is an awesome instrument!

I have some feedback for you. I took your bass to the top local music store (Fender Gibson Godin dealers) they were really impressed with the instrument, one of their techs/ bass players could not believe the sound from such a light bass and they all thought the bass was easy to play and loved the finish and look. Last night at the gig I usually use my trusted '66 P-Bass with flatwounds, when I run the amp flat the P-Bass sounds a little weak, so I add a touch of bass (Eden bass amps have powerful tone controls).+ When I switched to the Wendler (used it all of the 3rd set) I switch the bass tone to the minus position. It has tons of fat warm fundamental, the guys in the band loved it. We are playing the same room tonight. I'll be using the bass for all 3 sets. Great bass...
