Extended range basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Andrew Noury, Feb 20, 2002.

  1. Can anyone suggest extended range basses like the Zon Hyperbass?

    Specifically basses with 2+ octave fingerboards and extended cutaways.

    I'm just looking at different options.

    uh, quite a few of my conklins have greater than 24 frets...


    this has 28 frets on each neck


    this also has 28 frets



    both my fretted and fretless 8 strings have 36 frets.

    i also know that the custom curbow basses come with more than 24 frets

    Fodera's Anthony Jackson model has a 28-36 fret option.

    Fretless F basses have an extended fingerboard. As do fretless Atelier Zs and some Azolas.

    Also, there's a 27 fret F bass for sale at Bass NW, which people should be leaping at, but aren't. Weird.
  5. Wow John...

    Whenever I see a picture of that doubleneck I'm both amazed and a little scared.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I'm curious about the upper register and aside from the Hyperbass hadn't really seen many basses that allow this.
