Fender style 6 string?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jenderfazz, Dec 15, 2004.


  1. Being a fan of the Fender sound and feel, I was just wondering which companies offer good Fender style 6 strings, possibly more modern (a la Sadowsky, Lull, etc) but keeping the essentials. Jazz pickups, glossy neck, traditional woods, 34" scale, and not too steep a price tag. Any suggestions?
     
  2. doesn't low end J have 6 string model?
    and I'm pretty sure Atelier Z made 6 string J's also

    I had the same idea only in a P bass

    my-gas-cured.

    6 string fretless slab bodied P :smug:

    Brian has a few 6 and 7 string traditional 34" scale Jazz basses about to be finished.

    DSCF0011.

    DSCF0010.
     
  4. Check out Brian's line, he offers 4, 5, 6 and 7 stringers.
    My Lowend 7 is ready to go and I will have it next week.
    :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: I have problems enclosing appropriate pics, may be James can help.

    I'm sure he would. That'd be supreme cool.
     

  9. I played one of Brian's Low End 5 stringers at the Arlington guitar show, amazing feel and sound. :)

    Other than Low Ends, which are beautiful...

    I have heard that Mike Dolan has made a 6 string Jazzbass, Atelier Z also made one... I bet Rob Elrick could be convinced on his NJS models.

    If warmoth does the parts, i bet Nino would build you a 6 string "fender" valenti.

    FOLY HUCK'N "A" dude :cool: , Fother Mucker.... I just flat out need one.
     
  17. Im suprised Fender hasn't picked up on the demand for six strings. I think it would be a good idea on their part to make a six string Jazz bass. Now that I think about it, Fender could use an all new model period...I think they've done just about everything they can with the J and P bodies, I think something new would be nice...but don't get me wrong I love the P's and the J's and the PJ's etc etc etc. ;)

    now lets not forget the $10,000 custom shop Tye Zamora 6 string bass...
     
  19. but that bass isn't really a "fender style" even though it's made by fender
     
  20. Yeah thats a custom shop model...they'll make anything you want if you ask them...Im talking about a regular model...like a jazz bass
