    Still playing a 4 string fretted bass after 40 years
    The 5 -6+ craze just hasn't hit me yet, never will.
    As far as manufacturers goes it seems you always have the loyalist to Leo Fender = Fender, Music Man, G&L & then you have the Gibson clan which I am one on their six strings guitars..
    And then you have those sweet Ibanez guitars & basses with great feeling necks, action etc. @ great prices..
    Then you have all the others = Alembic , Fodera etc.

    I've got friends in LOW Places..
     
  5. I just acquired this USA Geddy Lee jazz. A very well made Fender Jazz.

    Hi:)
    There is more to 5 string than only extra notes. You can play songs up the higher frets using B string. Good for small hands. Adds different tonal possibilities.
     
  8. My Spl. Edition Jazz showed up today.

    After a long hiatus....I found a Fender MIM Jazz in mint condition for $90 from a guy that didn't really know what he was selling. Love it and am probably ruined from most other brands because of it.

    A Yamaha BB424X is my current main bass. It's old school design like a P bass with modern features like 5 piece chunky neck, string through bridge, deep neck joint, and P/J setup. I'll post photos soon.

    @john turner

    Does a Bass VI simply fall under the "6 string fretted" category?

    They are not the same to me. Frankly I think the VI is significant enough to warrant its own polling position. Especially now that I own one!!! :)

    I've 3 4-string fretted basses, a Mann, an Ibanez, and a Hagstrom Concorde I, which is my main squeeze. The Mann is a double neck (bass/6-string) and the Ibanez is a Gio, I think, with active pickups.
