  2. Admittedly, at least for this bass, I'm merely a tire-kicker, but posting pics will very likely generate more interest.
    Also- by 'starting' price do you mean asking price? This is not an auction site. :)

    posting a pic or two will save you more time rather than sending emails to everyone that's interested... And yes... You must put an 'asking price' and then we make an offer...

    Just wanna help you sell faster...

    I didn't mean to make it a bidding war. I meant to asking 2000 but we can negotiate. Here is a pic, I believe my other photos of it somehow got deleted... :mad:

  8. Here's a bump for you.

    I have a six string Adler - it's the background pic for my MySpace page.

    Mike Adler makes very unique creations. I think you'll see that the lower part of the fingerboard is wider than usual.

    What you can't see is that the neck gets thinner as it gets closer to the body, making it easier to play in the higher range. It's totally different than any other bass out there.

    Fish - if this isn't the case, let me know, and I'll take this off - but these are absolutely dynamite instruments. I had the opportunity to have a custom made several years ago - I narrowed the choice down to an Adler or a Roscoe. I leaned toward the Adler as I wanted a neck thru and three band EQ with individual controls. After speaking with 5 noted extended range bassists as to their recommendations, I went with the Adler.

    Anyone serious about a custom 6er should check this out.

    My God, look at the size of that neck! What is the nut width on that thing? Total weight? String-spacing at the saddles?

    Did you have 3 toggles added to it between the time you took the first & second pictures? LOL... what do they do (and the rest of the knobs)? Does it come with a case or bag? How's the balance on a strap?

    Thanks.

    If you can offer that right now yes :)
    as for the knobs and switches... the combination of tones is unreal. They mess with the coil taps for the soap bars. It is also probably the cleanest sounding bass I have owned.
