    Is there a model like this? Does anyone have one? It is possible to get the same Orion headstock or would they have to change that when making it a 6 string bass?

    I would ask this to the folks at Alembic, they can give you the best answer (www.alembic.com)
    As an Alembic owner, I can pretty much say they would make a bass almost anyway you want.....

    I've owned an Orion 6 for 3 1/2 years. It's become my main axe. I also own a Kubicki Ex-Factor that I use on funk gigs that require more slappin'. The tone is great thoughout the whole range of the bass.

    Wally tell me more bro. How about a pic? What woods do you have? You have great action and spacing? You had any problems with the neck or anything? Thanks

    The action is great, plays easy. I like the wider string spacing, don't like some of the tighter sixes. Not sure how to upload a jpeg here.
