I know I've seen at least the schematic in a RCA book, but so far I've 
not been able to discover which one.  Since I saw it "myself", I 
thought it would be one of the issues that I own but I've checked all

A couple people have pointed out that being the ultimate in "fretless" 
it requires great skill to play traditional notes.   Not being musical 
myself this might seem an insurmountable challenge but my curiousity is 
up and I'm going to build one.  I enjoy abstract electronic music, so 
that's a connection.  I've started gathering the parts - some from my 
stocks and some from friends and suppliers.  Won't be long now...

My daughter plays the upright bass, and that is a fretless instrument, 
so perhaps she'll be interested in the Theremin.
