Well, after a couple of months of frustration, I am finally taking my Int'l Petite 5 string to Curbow to have him do some mods to it. I've been playing it tuned EADGC for about 2 years now, and I'm gonna have him change the nut out for the smaller strings, and set it up with TI Jazz Flats. I'm also gonna have him rip out the Bartolini preamp, and drop in an EMG 18 V system. He says that they are amazing, and have headroom from hell. I can't wait to get it back from him. I'm also gonna be talking to him about a 6 string bass. I'm thinking Bird's Eye Maple top on a mahogany body. The Cort's are nice, but with two Greg Curbow built basses at home, I just don't think I can go with anything less. Of course, the downside is that I won't have the 5 string to bring with me to the ATL get together on Saturday. Oh, well.
