i have j style pickups in my ball5 and the aero's worked best for me.
Anyone on here have an order in with Cliff currently?
Hey guys. New to this thread but I have a build thread going on here: Cliff Bordwell 6 String Dola Build
My bass should be finished and shipped in about 3 weeks but here is the latest update.
i am in next batch. pistachio top
Nice looking bass! You’re going to love that scale length from Cliff.
And then some!
A short(er) scale 6 string is sublime!
Especially on his 6 string models! I have never played another 32” scale bass with a B string like the one Cliff puts out.
The B on my 31.5" ACG 6ers are amazing too, but this is a Cliff Bordwell thread
I have to admit though, seeing Cliff making the short(er) scale 6ers gave me the confidence to try it out on my custom basses.
One day I'll have a CB bass too.
You did/do have a CB bass right?
Even thought I might have sold you one of my older ones... but then again my memory left me a few years ago
Actually, no I don't.
Cliff's work is hard to come by here in the UK, and I already have found "my luthier" in Alan at ACG.
I have played a couple of CBs though, and having read how amazing his 32" 6ers have been I had every confidence it could be done.
One day though, I'll own one though
i have 2 32" 4 strings and they are wonderful. next will probably be a 5. fell out of love with my 6 strings about 15 years ago as 90% of the music i play was played on 4....
Sunset in Colonial Williamsburg VA.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
I've been watching this thread since receiving this bass last month. Chambered D bass.
It's been out to play 4-5 times so far, definitely catches people's attention.
I'm the 3rd or 4th owner since it was built in 2011, but this is a lifetime keeper for me. I am super impressed with the workmanship that go into his basses and happy to have it.
Welcome to the club, and that bass is amazing!
I’ve always loved the top on that bass.
tell us about the chambered body.. how resonant is it??
It's noticeable acoustically, but a very slight difference through the amp. There's a similar D bass with same electronics near me, only met that bass player twice and not sure when we'd be able to A/B compare them. His is not chambered, so I'd be curious how resonant his is vs. mine and overall effect
I have no idea how big the chambering is, but it does give a warmer midrange...maybe it's the Aguilar preamp, maybe it's the Rotosound flatwounds on it, very nice warm clean tone. That's my take on it, anyway.
i have a D bass also . but couple hours away...
Cliff's newest design?
LOL! DAMN. Fixed. I do have a Ball 5, tho.
