I am once again going 'round the block trying to figure out what six I want. I'm back once again to the Gecko. What a great looking instrument...except for that mandatory inlay. I would especially not want it if I got a fretless. The icing on the cake is when I call and ask some more questions, the salesman tells me he hates the dumb thing too. He says he keeps telling them that he could sell a bunch more if they'd make it optional. It's not even a manufacturing issue since I tried just getting ebony inlay on an ebony neck...no can do!...they want that stupid lizard for identity. I like the lizard, put it on the headstock, just get it off my fingerboard! How did Sadowsky ever get his basses known without inlaying an ostrich or maybe a cockroach or some other random thing on his bass neck...just lucky I guess. AHHHHH! I feel better now. I'll go buy my Acme Low B instead. That'll make me feel better except that I really want a six stringer.
