    wow that is one good looking bass
     
  4. Made by Chris Benavente, it's an awesome instrument.
    After playing a Lowend 5 at the Arlington guitar show I had to order one from Brian Barrett. I hope it'll be in my hands by Christmas :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

  5. I am glad you posted that becasue I was having trouble picturing a J style 7. I was thinking my next custom would be a 7 string J-style. I like the Conklins but the J-style is more my vibe.

    I want mine strung C#-F#-B-E-A-D-G.

    But I am thinking the fanned fret system may be warranted.

    How is this one strung?

    Wow, I considered getting a 6, and never even imagined it in a jazz style, or even a 7. Beautiful stuff.

    That is the only 7 string Jazz bass I have seen anywhere in my life. Heck, I haven't even seen a Jazz 6. It seems most players that dig the classic jazz style/look aren't quite as into the extened stuff the more hi-fi crowd. Kinda cool eh....
     

  13. Yeah, I am very excited.

    Merry Christmas to you 2 :D

  17. Hey Nino,

    That Black sadowsky is just like Jason Newsted's newest one. The 24-fretter with J pickups in the standard positions :bassist:
     

  18. Currently it's tuned from the low B up, and I think I'll
    keep it that way; but I might restring it starting with an F#
     
  19. Well if I go lower than a B do you know anyone who makes a cab that will handle it? ;)

    Yes it is. :) The only difference between his & mine his has an mini switch for the preamp by-pass & I opted for no on/off at all because Inever use it & he has the spokewheel truss rod adjuster & mine is the older one becasue I like the way it looks better.
