Maxgroover's 6 String Modern Jazz - #025

I am really digging the body shape. Looks FANTASTIC!

Am thinking a 24 fret in a 5 string with the neck pickup 1/2 closer to the bridge for a more modern sound. Nordy splits, or maybe fat stacks ... a Mailloux version of a Sadowsky Modern. :)

That is looking outstanding Phil :cool:

Great selection of hardware and finish Matt :thumbup:

A 6 string bass is gonna keep you very busy Matt. Basshack and I saw Evripides Evripidou with Albare last nigh, and man...the stuff that guy plays on his 6 string Warwick is just something else. You should check them out if you ever get the chance.....will give you lots of inspiration. Although I'm sure this bass will be inspiring enough :yep

When you get it and don't like it, you can flip it my way.

Somehow, I fear I'll never see it again. :(

Oh so close... It was so close to being mine... All I had to do was take it out of the boot of Phil's car when he wasn't looking ... oh well, enjoy Matt
