    Check out this thread.

    I'm not interested in a 6 stringer, but I'd love to see Roger's take on a short scale or a hollowbody bass.

    My credit score is grateful for the fact that an M6-24 does not exist. :D

    I wonder who owns this sweet bass. Hopefully it's a Tb'r and maybe Roger can also give us some insight on the reason why he prefers not to build them.

    Roy, you don't need 6 strings.

    I keep telling myself that, but now I'm eyeing Tony's fretless Marlyn MTD.

    i'm not roger,

    but he's told me time and again, that he just doesnt think the high C string belongs on the instrument, nor does he even like the sound of it.

    Id love to see a sadowsky vintage 24 6 string. I guess we have the rest of our lives to bug Roger........

    I think that's a wise statement... for the vast majority of bassists.

    I've heard Jimmy Haslip play his sixer through my little practice amp, and that's an entirely different story. I haven't heard many other six-stringers who can make it work. Maybe Patitucci...

    So for the vast majority of us plebeian/mere mortals, I'm glad Roger focuses on what he knows will make his instruments as great as they are, vs. getting distracted trying to cater to every single niche. That's one of the reasons why I went with Sadowsky as my only bass.
