I've done two bass projects that I've posted here a few times. A 5 string fretless and the Extreme Makeover - Bass edition. At some point in the future, though, I'd like to move up [evolve] to a 6 string, which is where I'd end the search for more strings on a bass. Anyway, when I eventually do this, I have two options. Option 1) I could try my hand [again] at doing one myself, such as going to Warmoth and doing a [gecko-less neck] Gecko 6 string bass, including all the hardware from Warmoth, then buying two Bartolini pickups and a 3 eq band preamp module. I'd like something in the spalted look, including matching head. Option 2) Just spend the extra [probably twice the amount of the Warmoth option] cash and buy a spalted Roscoe 6 string and save myself a lot of work and possible trouble. I thank you for your input.
