It seems many bassists are not in favor of any bass with more than 5 or 6 strings. Perhaps these instruments should be a NEW breed. You can play bass on a 10 string but, you can also play so much more. 10 strings are NOT just for tapping. You can play lead lines like a guitarist,or chords I just prefer the lower voicings. Some would say I'm not a bassist or a guitarist. What are your thoughts.
