How do you feel about extended neck basses? By extended, I mean anything with more the 24 frets. A friend of mine has a Carlo Rabelli with 26 frets (a ripoff $200), but I just played a 36er in a Guitar Center yesterday. It's sooo wierd. It's kinda cool having a whole extra octave to play with, but there's only like 3 inches between the end of the neck and the bridge, making it very awkward for my right hand. If I play directly over the pickups, my hand is so far to my right that it hurst my wrist, but if I go anywhere else I'm playing on top of the fretboard and get lots of rattle. I forget the company that made the bass, but it did sound pretty nice. Anyone have any experiance with these beasts? The one I played looked like this, but it was a righty and not as nice as this. You can see what I mean about the limited picking area.
