With all the modifications and "upgrades" that Fender has made over the years, why don't they have that option? I understand not wanting to change a winning formula, but in their case, it seems more of a refusal to accept any evolution in design that wasn't already done by Fender in the past. Yes, Fender once had a Bass V, so it's ok to have a V model with a B string now. Even if they don't expect to have any market share, would it kill these companies if they made at least one sixer or had it as an option? Surely, a Roscoe Beck 6 would be very popular and if Music Man has the Ernie Balls to put out a Bongo, surely a 6 string model would be a welcome addition. Maybe G & L should take the lead on this. Atelier Z makes a 6 string jazz already, so they could too. How about it: an L2600 bass. Opinions?
