    A SIX stringer with a purty quilted redwood top.
    Even with them dern lines...I wonder what kinda'
    piezo's in that thing? Seems awful wide for a
    "regular" Fishman Matrix.

    there are some samples on his site (takes a while to load) -
    http://roballenguitars.com/audio.html

    I ain't sure, but I think this is from an album Rob put out
    called "mysterious measures". (again guessing) it has him
    with one of his baritones and...??? on an R/A bass -
    http://www.chacramusic.com/realaudio/mysterious/cynthia.ram

    I'm pretty sure both audio samples are basses set-up with
    LaBella tapewounds - not Roto tapes (much nicer IMO),
    or...:eek: T/I Acousticores. Totally different tone (totally).
    Fortunately, Ah...uhh...Ah keep mah feathas numbered for...for just such an uh-ccasion :)
     
  5. Wow, another rob allen custom, you must really like those basses. Tell me, do you think they used the curling iron for that one? ;)

    `tain't mine. I'm just sayin' is all :D.

    I DO like `em a bunch...the tone, simplistic design, and the
    stoopid playability and lightness work well with my mangled
    mitts. Yarrgh, not what you'd call a "manly" bass :p.
     
  7. I saw another 6 String Rob Allen on Ebay a while ago, I just had to save this pic.

    I like that one better. Speaks to me. Maybe when money grows on trees...sheesh. So many basses, so little money.

    lmao :p

    hmm...Mongo is intrigued. But what to do with two extra strings? ;).

    Credit? What credit? My two cards won't speak to me after what
    I did to `em with the doubleneck.

    Actually, I spoke to Rob about another "custom" project. So.
    Soon as I get a job that pays market rate or the tooth fairy
    returns my calls - whichever come first :rolleyes: - it'll be time to put
    some more tree huggers outta' work.
