Happy Birthday Mr Lesh!
Does anyone know how his 6 string bass was tuned? Was it guitar tuning, one octave lower? I saw that Musicman made a 6 string guitar/bass awhile back, and I have a 6 string Modulus bass from the 80's, with a very narrow neck, and wondered if it should also be tuned like that. The previous owner mentioned it was Phil Lesh inspired, but had it set up like a regular 6er. All that heavy metal on the low end seems a bit crowded and does not feel right. The graphite neck does not seem to happy about it either. Since I know Modulus and Alembic collaborated in the past, just wondering. Thanks!
