    Looking for a company who makes a "jazz bass" style 6 string bass. I am really not into the boutique bass thing. I would like to find a company that builds a 6 with a jazz style body and wider than normal string spacing. I think this is going to nearly impossible.
     
  2. the Atelier Z has a 6 string version.. (which is a Jazz of course..)

    Here's the Atelier Z, it's about as close to a true 6 string jazz bass as you're going to find. Scroll down on this web page to see the bass...
