    WOW! Is that actually REAL bubinga? That has got to be the best deal under 1000$.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
  6. I think it's a bit odd that the text descriptions sometimes don't match the actual bass. Maybe Kurt's too busy to edit the text.

    You noticed em too eh? :) I posted a thread a few nights ago about the Quilted maple 6 and Bubinga 6. I think the Bubinga will probably be my next bass. I want to start learning 6 but I don't want to pay too much in case I decide that I can't handle it. Anyone here know about a Brice 6 neck profile compares to an Ibanez Soundgear or Dean Edge? Thos are the only 2 6's I've ever played in a store.
     
  8. I'd suggest contacting Kurt at Rondo directly with an email. He's been very good about answering questions.

  9. dude.........I know what you mean!!! too bad I can't either hear sound clips or even get to try one out before playing.but that definitely sounds really cool!
     
  10. If a person who has played mainley 4 or 5 string fretted...which one of those Bubingas would be better to get, Or the one that would be easier to 'grasp ahold of'?
    6 string fretted or 5 string fretless?

    string spacing at the bridge is 3.5". That figures out to around 17.75 mm string pitch at the bridge. Not bad for a 6er.

    Five: Check the classifieds. I have no soundclips, though, unfortunately.

    By the way - did anyone else notice that the position markers on the fretlesses are placed similar to the Michael Kely acoustics - in between where the frets should be?

     
  18. anyone gonna be the guinea pig?
     
  19. Im seriously contemplating getting one now...i just gotta figure which would be better for me, 5 fretless or 6 fretted.
