    I am absolutely nuts for NYBW or New York Bass Works basses. David Segal is the best. Period. There is one thing an NYBW 6-string can do that no other boutique I have owned or played in a store can: That is it walks from a four down through the low B naturally, sounds like it belongs, and is articulate. And you can walk up the C string and it stays like it belongs, warm and full - a bass string. So, you can use natural 4-string technique down the B and up C. It is also an extremely balanced and comfortable bass. I have fretted and fretted ones. They're all I play. There are highly respected boutique basses that simply are not in the same musical world of quality as an NYBW.
