I'll have a look

If nothing here now , when the LaBella order arrives I will have some GHS Pressure Wound I can send you

Erratic weather here in Otatahi so been getting at least an hour a day just on Fretless. They certainly are a quirky thing. I have to concentrate a lot more.

A while back I purchased a heap of Aebersold Jazz Playalongs and with the Fretless Basses it’s great fun and educational.
