Jim Kimsey

Jim willfully unfretted a Supro ‘Super model 3/4 size guitar in spring 1981. He played this for ten years until 1991 (including not filling the slots), until 1991 when a Chicago luthier modified the Supro making the bottom 4 strings fretless and the top 2 strings fretted. The 2 top strings also had a sitar style buzz bridge fitted and the Fretless Super Buzzmaster was born.
