    Good interview JAUQO. Answers a lot of questions about the mechanics of getting the right pickups for that low sound.
    Also good of you to credit the people that inspired you to go that route.:cool:
    Harmolodics baby !

    Interesting chat, Jauqo, thanks for the link. Interviewer sounds like a very laidback kind of guy - maybe it was, as he said, a bit early (or late)! I think you lost him a little, but any bass players listening will have understood and picked up on what you're doing. Nice work.

    BTW, I don't think you mentioned the scale length on that low C# bass, is it close to standard 34 or 35 inch, or longer? What's the gauge on that bottom string?

    Thanks for checking it out but I couldn't get to deep on a lot of things because of time and that just not being the total format to discuss just Bass only,I tried to get aspects of the Bass that I thought were a little more needed from the basic level of the concept overall during the interview.the scale length on my fretless Adler is 34" and the Low C# string gauge is .195.

    It's good to know that you just can't convert any old j bass
    to that tuning with out having the pickups specifically "tuned"
    to handle those low HZ.

    Low C#=.195! Wow. Heavy stuff, in every sense. How's the tension/neck relief/replacement cost? :D
