RE: oud simulator?

The best thing I've seen so far is an electric oud made by a small company
in California. Has a very modern look and is supposed to be great technology -
mp3s sound good too - but I've never tried one. Cost: about $1500. Thanks...

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,

Subject: oud simulator?

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?
