Danelectro 6 String Bass Reviews 5

Ordered this from Wheaton Music by phone. I was looking for a six-string bass guitar tuned EADGBE and I was offered a reasonable price from Wheaton Music.

I have played the the guitar fpr over fifty years. My youngest son plays the piano in a high school jazz combo. I found that the bass and piano seem to go together better than the piano and guitar when playing jazz. Since I can read guitar music reasonable well, I can play the bass if I do the following: Using a computer program, I capture the bass score from MIDI files, change to the treble clef, then raise the score two octaves! Works great!

Once in a while, I have to rotate the tone adjustment to eliminate distortion! Must be some dampness causing the rheostat to malfunction.

The construction is excellent considering the cost! You get what you pay for!

I really enjoy the 6-string bass! A great new sound for me! Well worth the money. I spent hours on the Internet looking for a 6-string bass tuned EADGBE! This is the only one I could find! Best purchase I made considering the enjoyment I get from playing this instrument!
