    bolt on configuration looks weird but other than that..how do they even profit on these things..hurts my brain..there couldn't be a large enough market for single-cut sixes to warrant the effort in design/production of this bass you would think. Unless there's a bourgeoning single-cut 6 string revolution about to sweep the bass world lol.

    If I had a need for another 6er, I'd have no problem risking that cash for this.

    I can take a hint... sometimes. LOL

    Honestly, I haven't spent that much time with it (it hasn't struck me as something really special), and I really should probably change the strings. In truth I am a J bass kinda guy and that's what I tend to play. It is well built and a great value (like every Brice I've ever owned) and I like the hardware, control layout and pre, but it hasn't wowed me. I'll try to put my normal strings on it and get back to you... I mean everyone. ;)

    Dang. I just cleaned out my couch cushions and the cup holders in my truck. I found a lint ball, a FruitLoop, the remote, a key I've been looking for, and enough money to buy this bass!

    (Just kidding. I ate the FruitLoop days ago)

    I believe the "top" is photoflame.

    Ah, that's the five string version of this model, right? Thanks for the link. I'm still waiting for some sound clips there! :D

    BTW, I wonder if Rondo will ship to the EU now with the CITES law. I mean, they must have the certificates to get them into the US, surely they can get them out again.

    No, not unless they are able to make photoflame look 3-dimensional.

    What's the string spacing on your bass? Rondo's website says 15.1mm at the bridge for the 5 string version (and 5/8" - 15.875mm for the 6 string model).

    Man, it does look pretty. My guts says if it sounds too good to be true, it must be.

    I don't know... just feels wrong?

    Not sure where you're going with that but it reminded me of this which makes me happy!
