    IMO Roger OWNS the "J" style bass group.

    I love that Modern 5. I do wish it was a 4 though. The only thing I wish Roger would do that he doesn't is give the option of face mounted output jacks like are found on fenders. I'm just not a fan of side jacks I guess. :oops:

  5. Oh my god, that is just beautifull. Probably a bit out of my price range, maybe someday... hopefully. One of the most beautifull basses I have ever seen

    Thank you.

    This is still my holy grail.

    I've yet to play a bass that has as much "it" as this bass has.

    Hey Nino,
    I don't think anyones ever asked this before but is there a reason Roger doesn't do face mounted input jacks that you know of? :confused:
    I'm a lover of all jazz basses and believe it or not thats one of the many reasons that I do like them so. :bassist:

    Not that I know of.

    I do know that all of the bodies come in pre-drilled with the side hole Jack. I'll ask him tomorrow.

    Thanks Nino. I was just curious if there was a design/manufacturing reason or if it boiled down to a personal preference on Roger's part. Thanks for asking though ;) .

    And you are evil evil evil for starting this thread! I've been having some serious GAS pains for a Sadowsky 5-string lately, and this is pushing me close to the breaking point. ;)
