But John Turner only needed seven...
Thats a whole lot of fretboard.
Must have some pretty good meat hooks for hands to play that thing
If you want to prove that bigger is better, just get a penis extention. An 11 string bass is probably not worth it!
I kid! I kid!
(That was PG-13, I hope. I can say 'penis', right mods?)
If you don't have the hands of an NBA basketball player the only thing you could use that fretboard for is a cutting board, but it's still cool.
Double plus un-good.
For what? Not having enough strings on a bass?
hmmm... I am sure I am closed minded for thinking that is a bit silly...
...although part of me likes it.
looks like the bottom few strings are meant to be drones?
any more pics?
found some of the bass being built pre-Namm show-
wow, i bet i could play chromatic fantasy on that with only open strings!
j/k, but wow, what is that tuned to?
im guessing its lowest is a low F# so following the circle of fourths it would be something like
f# b e a d g c f Bb Eb Ab
Cool. Looks much nicer than the 11-string prototype he had previously made. Not something I'd ever need, but I'm sure it's someone else's dream come true.
man, looks like you have to go into thumb position on that thing!
Nothin' like a "1984" reference
I couldn't even reach the 4 regularly tuned bass strings on that.
Who needs harps?
i bet the headstock on that thing is the size of a warwick thumb's body
Jaco only needed four... (ducks)
