    Don't hate me or laugh at this thread, I'm serious. :bag:

    Last night I had a dream that I found a bass. I believe it was a Conklin with 14 strings. It was one of those octave things like the 12 string guitars and the 8 string basses, the only diffrernce is that it had 7 sets of strings.

    Tell me, has anyone seen one of these ever?

    Sounds like something Alembic would be a part of!

    I think I've imagined something like that... except mine was a fretless.
