    Hello my fellow TBer's I would like to get a few
    things off my chest about why I like my Adler 8 string Bass.

    1.
    The small non bulky body,the weight is very
    comfortable and balances very well.
    2.
    The versatility of the electronics setup.
    2 duel single coil Villex Pickups
    with a pickup coil selector switch
    for each pickup and 1 Boost switch
    3.
    Two volumes knobs,1 midrange,1 Tone knob and 1
    Piezo volume knob.(it wasn't hooked up because
    the bridge was lost in transent to Canada to the
    co.Graphtech,but will be installed very soon.)
    4.
    The extreme sturdiness of the neck and it plays
    very fast.
    5.
    You can feel each vibration no matter how hard or suttle,flow
    thru this Instrument and thats just listening to it Acousticly.
    6.
    The Bass over all looks very nice as well.

    Im very proud of the outcome of this
    Instrument and Whole Heartedly thank
    Mike Adler for his unsurpassed attention
    to detail and his very attentive ear to
    my desire and aspiration for a very well
    put together Instrument.I feel Mike will
    have a Great future as a Luthier,and he's
    so young :)Mike I wish you the very Best in
    the years to come and I would just like to
    say thanks again.

  2. I got the chance to get a good look at that bass at NAMM, if it was the same blue single cutaway at the Adler booth. Really, really nice, the action was incredibly low and the neck wasn't as unwieldy as I had expected for 8 strings. Outstanding piece of work. Show the pictures! :D

    An 8 string Adler? Jeez, next thing you know those clowns will be trying 11 string basses! What will they think of next!

    :D :D

    sounds like a sweet bass. Post pics when you get them.

  5. Jauqo - did you manage to get any further pictures? I love the look of this bass! Also, are Adlers generally expensive?
