    LOL! I don't know where the guy got them from, they were used and I think the most he paid was like $1700 USD for one, but that was like mint with case, active box. Of course he also collects old Moogs and Arp synths as well.

    A guy I work with who taught bass had 2 or 3 of those, it's an active direct box/slash power supply that sits on the floor, it also powers the on board active electronics ... very cool deal, but then again those are incredible basses ... And he's an incrediable bass player, great match ... Almebic's idea was for dark stages ... I guess.

    Vai has them on a custom mirror-finished Jem in his Live at the Astoria video when he plays Bad Horsie. The look friggen awesome...

    Wasn't there a site/company that marketed a variety of lasr/LED fretboard lighting systems? Someone posted one on the old board a while ago and I can't recall the name.

    LEDs on a guitar sounds like an awful idea to me. YMMV.

    That's the slight teeny weeny little problem.... it's not. Double humbucker guitar with no pickguard. I figure the wires could run through a passageway into the control cavity, going through the pickup holes. Of course, this means I'd have to have a hole in the neck joint area, which could complicate things...

    It shouldn't be too much harder than building a neck from scratch...not that building a neck from scratch is a task I'd describe as easy.

    In the 80's, I think Aria Pro marketed a standard model with these. The guy from Judas Priest (Glen Tipton?) had them (red LEDs) on one of his Hamers too. I prefer no inlays at all, but whatever floats yer boat...
