too bad i wouldn't be able to play it... 19mm at the bridge! but suuure looks yummy
That is really my dream bass. Too bad it would cost me an arm and tear off the other arm with it's monstrous weight.. That thing has to be heavy.
looks soo huge though.. a 6 string Jazz Bass with 19mm string spacing.. I wouldn't have expected that from a 'Jazz Bass'.. I wonder what the string spacing at the nut would be (or the nut size).
Also, that bass would be H E A V Y. Ash for ya
Hey hey, it's the first Jazz Bass I think I'd like to own.
I knew you were going to come in sometime in this thread..
Why did you have to go and do that, Jason?!?!?!?
I had almost forgotten that those things existed, now I have a whole new case of GAS for one!!!
FWIW, a Fender Jazz 4 has 19mm bridge spacing, so it is only natural that a 6 true to the Jazz design would as well.
A couple years ago I was at the NY bass and Gtr Booty-Q, and Jimmy had an Atelier Z 6 string (vintage burst) for around $2100... they must be close to that now... right?
I thin it is a killer looking bass and the idea of a good 6 string jazz is great, but how about the playability and having to gig with it for a 5 hour gig? Might give my back some issues.
Not bad (I really don't like the clear pickguard with the writing on it), but if I'm going to pick up a six string Jazz, it'll be one of these Curbows:
Light as a feather, and as easy to play as a 4 string Jazz.
Gosh! These six string Jazzs looks awesome. I would love that Z.
The Atelier Z is awesome, but I've played that Curbow, and it's in another class! That thing smoked!
Are these on the market now? What is the price range?
I dig that Atelier, but 19mm on a six is HUGE! I can deal with it on a five pretty well, but crap! That thing is massive! If it weren't for that pickguard, though, that would be one sweet looking bass!
Honestly, I'm not sure. I know he was going to CNC the body to make it more affordable than the hand carved bodies he does. If you shoot him an email, I'm sure he could tell you more about it. I'll ask the next time I talk to him to find out more.
I'd love to get one, but my next Curbow 6 will be my last Curbow 6, and that's going to be a singlecut Lightwave. If the price is right, though....
They are amazing instruments. A local player has the two handmade prototypes (he had the original idea, and gave input to Greg on the design), one active and one passive, and they are absolutely stunning. The Birdseye on the neck is the most ridiculous figure I've ever seen on a neck. Almost looks fake it's so crazy.
Here's the passive one.
Whew, that is the first natural finish i wanted to puke on. Just me? or is that wood tone FUGLY.
I think it is just you, because that wood looks beautiful to me. I think the wood looks cool, but wierd in a way. Very different than most others I've seen. I think I am too used to seeing bookmatches with the grain facing inwards, not running parallel to the bass.
Pretty sure it's just you. Bookmatched Swamp Ash ugly? But, hey, to each his own....
I personally think this is ugly.
I've never seen those curbows. My bass under construction is going to something like that. I can't wait..
The Curbows are VERY nice, but the neck pickup isn't really in the standard place. I understand this probably is because of the 24-fret board, but if I were to buy one, i hope one could customize a bit?
BTW, what kind of pickups are those?
Those are Bartolinis. And, as I am pretty sure they aren't being CNC'd as of yet, you can have any pickup option you want. You can email Greg at email@example.com and I'm sure he'll be happy to tell you what the different options are. And, if I know Greg, the less normal the better!
