    This is very exciting to me if true. I've been holding off from purchasing the Stage 800 in hopes that Fender would expand on the platform and offer more options with modeling, bluetooth, etc.

    Please, anyone who attends, post some photos or videos and product info if this rumor turns out to be true.

    Looks like a new variation on their jazz style bass. Can't wait to see this one too. I hope this is a 34" scale 5 string.

    For any of you 10-string bass fans, my buddy Keith Horne will have his blue 10-string there in his booth. He'll be in booth 3352, Hall D. Stop by and try it out. You'll never forget that vibration deep in your bones.

    Nope, different Keith Horne. This Keith Horne is a pro Luthier, who mostly builds guitars, but a few specialty basses. His shop is in the same building as mine, across the hall. We're in Fillmore, CA, a little north of Los Angeles. We help each other on various projects. I made the custom bridge and pickups on the 10-string.

    Keith is also a pretty serious rock guitarist. He hangs around with the Misfits, and often gets hired to fill in concerts with other bands.

  17. Interesting factoid - ukelele is the largest selling stringed instrument in the world by a long shot.

    I find it curious Fender put the fret marker on the 10th and not the 9th. 10th is usually for instruments tuned in 5ths whereas ukes are tuned [generally] in 4ths that sees the fret marker at the 9th. A lot of peeps in the tenor/mandolin community were ticked when Fender released their Tenor Tele with the marker at the 9th - tenors are generally tuned in 5ths [but can be tuned any way you want].

  20. I have bought a very cheap bass ukulele a few years ago for 120,- and really like it. Sounds close(r) to an upright.
