    Alright so I was cruising the classiest bass thread down the page and saw this sexy looking 7 string beauty.

    In this thread...

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=241993&page=2

    Bascially I've been wanting to convert over to 6 string for quite some time now, and have owned a couple 6'ers over the years that I loved but was unable to souly commit to. The time has come, and the bass above is pure sex IMO. What options out there are there for a 6'er in a Jazz bass style?

    Thanks
    Peace

    "EDIT" I used standard html for the link and now it seems I can't use the forum link option in the editing mode so I'll post it below.

    My local guitar center had a Low End 6 string and it played wonderfully until someone wore the strings dead. I could kick myself for not jumping on it.

    The more I look at that bass, the more I love it... now I just want one in a 6 with that color and everything.

    How much does one of these run, I've been tracing all over the low end site and their distributers and none have prices.

    Are there any other 6 string Jazz style basses out there?

    Wow, that is such a sweet looking Jazz above,
    the only think that would make it that much sexyier would be a pearlescent white paint job.

    Well any more info on either the Low End or other 6 string Jazzes would be greatly appreciated.

    Peace

    Schnatzbass, do you have any experience with Clover basses? I´m quite interested in a 6 string J as well. That gold sparkle is horrible but I assume he does SB too.

    Saetia, you're drooling on a Low End Jazz. According to the price list on the web page, you're looking at $2200 for a 6-string Jazz.

    :eek:

    wow. i know that $2200 is a lot but i thought it would of been in the $3000+ mark for one of those.

    I say get one if you can. Damn if i lived in the states i'd have one.

    Curbow will make you an amazing 6 string Jazz Bass, too. Just give Doug a call.

    www.curbow.com

    I'm pretty sure there are some 6 string jazz pics in the gallery.

    Saetia,

    I posted that bass in the other thread ..... I, too, have been lusting after that thing since the first time I saw it. LowEnd will be glad to build one for you, I'm sure .... ;)

    Even though my main players are custom FBB's, the thought of a classic jazz shape bass with 6/7 strings is incredibly appealing. The day will come when I'll own one of those basses. BTW, they also make a beautiful black 6 ... :cool:

    I have a few pics of them saved at my house (i'm at school,) and IIRC they're made by TheLowEnd.

    It looks great but it's not for me, or my gig. I have a SB fixation anyway :)

    You can find the pricelist at www.lowendbasses.com I have a 5 string in black with black blocks and binding. I couldn't sing the praises of it enough. Everything is perfect for me.

    Here's the gallery of all the LEJ basses that have been built

    i came across a 6 string jazz bass just last night. Had rehearsal for this weekends service with the other church we are partnering with.....which is at Minute Maid park sunday morning here in houston if any of you houstonians would like to attend. The other bass player has a 6 string jazz bass made by a guy in california. The basses are called performance basses. The bass player told me that he saw someone with Janet Jackson playing a 6 string jazz and searched for that bass. He found the builder and contacted him and ordered on. It looks real good. I will take photos of it on Sat. and post them.

    It is black with maple/maple neck and pearl block inlays, white binding and a pearl pickgaurd. looks amazing. I didnt play it but I will check it out on Sat.
