    I was wondering if there is any hard rock/metal bassists that play 5-string jazz type basses. I don't know of any off hand but does anyone else know of some?
  2. I was leafing through an old Bassplayer mag & saw an article on Christian Olde-Wolbers(sp?) w/Fear Factory(I think...). He had a custom Fender 5- a Roscoe Beck looking body w/a block inlay neck, IIRC.

    Edit: Jason Newsted plays Sadowsky, I think.

    Yup, Jason Newsted plays Sadowsky.
  7. Hmm, so far, it's always been a 4 strings.
  8. Christian from Fear Factory was always using them until he switched to guitar when Dino left. Now the new bassist is using his old basses.
