1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

This should make the 5-string haters go blind...:o)

    So what is it, 8 strings with double octaves on each string?

    lmao! Countng them up, thats 23? I think that adds up to a 6 string bass with 2 octave strings per course save the lowest, which just got 2? I tried a 12 string once and that was hard enough, I'm not sure what I'd even do with that....


    Oh yes, 323, I think youre right that does look like 8

    Is that 8x3 = 24 Wowza! I bet it has a moddest amount of neckdive with that headstock!
    But a total work of art it is.

    And I thought 8 and 12-string basses served no function. This may take the cake along with that ridiculous chapman stick.

    Have you ever heard Tony Levin play a stick? I have, and it wasn't the slightest bit ridiculous.

    I'd be more than willing to take it on a test drive, would not buy it though.

    Yes I have. Music for nobody but bored music magazine readers. It's wankery. Why hasn't it caught on with other cats? Cuz it sucks. It belongs to the smooth jazz circuit of sterility and poor album sales. Tony used to rock. Now he is like an info-mercial for a stick no one wants.
