    11 and 12 strings makes me think, what's the point as well. It's because their is a demand for it. At least it is doubled. I'd hate to see 8 strings non-doubled coming from Rondo. Think of the wanking....sooo much wanking.

    38 minutes isn't bad, Jason... I think that I have seen 2-3 minute range in other instances :D .

    Heh, well, I was in a 401(k) seminar at work. So, I might not be slipping in my old age, but I certainly am preparing for it. :bassist:


    Seriously, though, I'm amazed that Rondo is offering this instrument. To call it a niche market is an understatment. :D But, they certainly do impart a unique sound, and challenge.

    Thats me quoted at the end...and I just saw this bass, and yes I did buy another bass, my brice 6 string. now I think I need to get a third, I love Mark Eagens playing on early Pat Metheny, and he also did a lot of Incredible work on the Duran Duran split off Arcadia.
    Looks like Im buying Another bass from Rondo.
