RE: oud simulator?

Title: Message
I have a Najarian acoustic oud. He makes fabulous instuments.
Anyone interested in oud who hasn't heard what Brad Shepik does with an electric oud or saz should seek out his work.

There are a couple of good looking electric ouds made by Viken Najarian
Review of the E-1000 on Harmony
There`s a clip on this site of one similar looking to the Najarian oud. Noisy and cheap
sound quality but gives an idea. Site seems to be inactive.
Lark in The Morning has an electric oud by "Renowned Turkish luthier Saadettin Sandi"
other places to look
The message board on unfretted can probably answer if fretless guitars like the Godin Glissentar
may sound oudlike with some EQing.

I've heard a fretless nylon string Renaissance (the brand not the era) by Rick Turner do a very convincing oud like sound, The model is the RN6, and I know of at least one jazz guitarist in the Pittsburgh area who has one but I don't remember his name. They are not cheap, The budget alternative would be to yank the frets from an Epiphone Chet Atkins copy an fill in the holes with wood filler. I do know that Rick has made a few instruments with lament woods that are less expensive, but still have the great pickups and construction.
Good luck,

Hey - does anyone happen to know if there's an effects pedal or box out there
that simulates an egyptian oud? I am soooo tired of dealing with all the
maintainence problems with a real one - it would be awesome if there was
a simulation for guitar. Any info?
