    If it ain't stickie'd in big bold letters, this thread is just destined to be #6 (but IMO it's closer to 12).


    Maybe a Mod can merge them all, but then it would just be a thread with 500 posts, 489 of which amount to "do a search".

    I have to admit, the devil in me thought for a moment about starting yet another thread on this tiresome topic just to raise people's hackles. :bag:
     
  6. Thanks, Mark. Worth a shot. Too bad that if this doesn't get "bumped" every hour or so, it'll just fall farther into the list and soon we'll be seeing the inevitable "WOW! CHECK THIS OUT!!!" thread that will draw us in like a moth to a flame, only to be "zapped" with the reality:eek: !
    Maybe someone should find a way to track a subject that keeps cropping up and after it generates a certain amount of threads, pick the most informative one, (or a link to them all), and make a stickie at that point. A lot of work, though...

    I think I said it last time this came up; with new people joining every day, there's always going to be someone that hasn't seen it before, so ya' might as well get used to just skipping over those threads and moving on. Less irritation for you that way.

    Good luck, and god bless you for trying;) !

    This is getting almost as popular as P vs J threads. I think it's about time someone did a one-handed bass player thread (with video link).

  12. HEY! I got it. we gotta get one of the rich dudes to buy that retractablke fret bass, and ship it to the one handed guy so he can make a video for us. that'd roxxor.
     
  13. Has a REALLY nice sound to it...and for $5000, it damn well better be. Only players like Wooten would be able to afford it. I can buy LOTS of stuff for $5000...hell, I could even get a new MTD just the way I want it, and still have $$ for a decent fretless or a decent rig!

    That's really cool.. but for now I think I'll be alright with my fretted and fretless separate.

    I don't have $5K for a bass but it's a pretty cool idea. That guy has some chops too!
