9 string would be great for creating melodic strummy sort of songs, (strummed with fingers not pick to show respect lol) but yeah the width of the fretboard would be too big for my hands

I've seen a picture of a 15 string bass on the internet...i don't really know how you would go about playing one though..

Or buying new strings for that matter!

pfff, this is not about how many strings someone needs, its about the basses, you fuck.

Jaco is okay, but he's not THAT great I mean, come on, mark king could probably beat his ass, Jaco is overrated.

It's the same with Jimi Hendrix.
We all know he's quite good. We all respect him for what he did.
But still we can say, he isn't the best. That's the way why we can say Jaco isn't the best. And he isn't the best.
He did something revolutionary, OK. But there are nowadays enough bass-players who can beat him in any way. There were several better bass-players before him and who notices them?
Even Jaco be a poor guy at a six or whatever string.
Jaco is so exclucive because he bacame popular and he made the "first" fretless.

You can't say he's the best.
And you can't degrade all the really good guys on the bass, just because Jaco was the first. Did you hear something of "progression"? Or do you belive still in the planet-system of Kopernikus? (Hope, you did hear of him.)

Never heard of conklin.
So i visited their site.
Some of the guitars and basses look nice.
And some of them have a really weird fretboard.

well def we finally have something in common! we both love alembic. i will admit you have good taste in basses.
i play a 5 string alembic utopia(im pretty shure this is the model,ive never seen one like it.) and i used to have a 4 string 84 distilete.
i would love a ken smith 6 string burner or a carl thompson or a fodera.
go to alembics website and worship the custom shop photo gallery where there are some basses that went for.........get this......$20.00-30,00!!!!!!
i would love a 6 string rogue.

yeah, I've seen the alembic custom shop, they make the worlds most incredible basses, 'kinda' expensive though

I dunno the utopia, I played a Orion mark king custom once in a shop, it rocked, but damn... that fucking pricetag

Ken Smiths, I dunno, never played them, CT's aren't my thing, I hate their design, Fodera's are the shit though, same goes for Sadowsky's. not exactly your budget priced basses though.

alembics are hard to get hold of here though, I only saw one in a store once and the the guy who ran the store was the owner, eh, its probably because of the pricetag.
Mark King plays some of their mean customs on his DVD, crazy shit, I'de love to own an Alembic.
