Posthumous honorary meembership?

Normally I'd ignore geetards, but we're talking about Mr. Chester Atkins. Check out this fretless nylon string action.


So is he in or what? Do you have to be a bassist, or just a fretless player?

I wouldn't want to make that call, since I'm not the fretless guru..............But it is pretty cool, I don't ever recall seeing someone play a FL guitar?

Pat Metheny has a few fretless guitars. You can hear him play one on the "Imaginary Day" CD.

As for ol' Chet (God rest his soul) being an honorary BABP fretless player, I also agree that our resident fretless guru will have to make a judgement.

Chet Atkins can be a member of anything, dead or alive, and I'd feel A.) Honored to be anywhere near his name, and B.) wholly unfit to sit in judgment of him.

Chet was "badass" long before this forum saw the light of day!

I sure agree with Kennan on this one!
