    how cool would that be?!?!?

    maybe if we make a thread big enough, someone at the shop'll take notice? ;)

    Cept for the fact that Roger has expressed disinterest in moving into 6 strings.

    I'd hit it. In fact, I would also go a vintage style version of it too...

    I agree it would be awesome thats the only push i would need to move into 6 string. ;) :bassist:
  6. i'd buy a (probably 2) sadowsky if they made six strings in modern and vintage...otherwise i prob never will :(
  7. I'd like one of those, but for my six-string purposes they seem way too polite fingerstyle....killer slap tones on everyone i've heard though. When i whip out the sixes i'll be doing harder edged more progressive rock/metal stuff. For everything else, there's Valenti :D

    It would be awesome if they would, but he hasnt expressed any interest in doing it.
    He will make strings for a 6 though.

    Nino should be able to do that ... think Gecko.
  10. i'm gonna have to ask him about that....though he'd need new headstock templates as well i think. If he started making Sixes that'd make my life so much easier :smug:

    i dunno...

    i thought about the vintage style in a 6 or more string, but IMHO, it seems a little too busy looking.

    whereas the more refined and sculpted lines of the Modern 24 seem to lend itself well to the multi-string approach.

    A 21 fret six string seems weird to me.
    Why not just get a 24 fret 5 and all you'll be missing is 1 note!

    While I can't speak for other 6 string players, for me it is only partially about the extra range. It is also about the ability to play without shifting. Also frees me up to play in differing locations on my instrument to change up the timbre (ex: open G vs G on the low B string). Of course, the added range is fun.

    Wow, that had absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this thread. I sincerely hope that Sadowsky never makes a 6 stringed bass. That way, I'll never have serious gas for a Sadowsky.
  19. +1 on everything.
