  1. How's it strung (what tuning)?

    :roflmao:
     
  3. I currently have it tuned B-E-A-D-G-C-F
     
  4. With that bass I could get away with playing most stuff using just open strings!
    :cool:

    Then why not buy a 17 string one, you could play that with just one hand.... :p
    Come to think of it, do Bass Harp's exist?

  6. I've been thinking about this also, not so much the bass harps but tuning a 7-string B0-E1-A1-D2-G2-C2-F2 thereby having one instrument with both 5 string standard B tuning as well as (almost) your favourite D tuning!?

    Probably a very silly idea, but pretty sure by now that this is a safe space :bag:

    PS. What are the string spacings like @red_bassist ?
     
    MirandM, markwrob and RodRy like this.
  7. @George Dennis string spacing is 15.5 mm, surprisingly comfortable on the fingers IMO

    Hmm, maybe I should bring back my 6 string from my second home and try something like that: E-A-D-G-C-F or even more weird B-E-D-G-C-F :whistle:

    Hmm, yes 15.5 is not too far off of Ric's 17 mm spacing, so doable.

    I also collect Ramen noodles. I hide them under my socks. I have assorted flavors and I always have the hook up if you need and run out. LOL

  11. This Orange O bass is super fun! It's lightweight and has a great tone and a very comfortable neck

    So how many basses does this put you at?
    :p

  16. Currently 2 :bassist: - this one and the 7 string

  17. To be fair, as I may have aleady said, that 7-string is +1.75 of a standard bass, so rounding up, you've effectively got 3!

    Nice looking Orange bass btw. Are you considering posting an NBD thread? If so, let us know as I'm keen to know more about these from somebody who plays one. :thumbsup:

    I think I have everybody on here totally whooped…Beat..., whatever you wanna call it. I lost count and I stopped counting once I reached over 150 beautiful bass guitars and I think that was four years ago and I probably added to a week since then so the sickness is real LOL put it this way sometimes I'll be walking in my house and I'll go in a room and just look for an old case and I'll open it up and I'll open it up and then I'll take a step back scratching my head and I'll say to myself... Wow that's where that 68 pink paisley Fender PBass is!!! LOL I specifically chose the 68 pink paisley because that happened yesterday to me. Look at all these cases but before you say anything stupid like that guy must be a spoiled little brat or any other idiotic comment that came out of your mind just know that I work very hard for each and everyone of these beautiful basses and then I made many sacrifices to own what I own. I traded two wonderful wife's And a couple other great woman just to keep this collection going and I will keep doing that till I play my last note or I take my last breath. Bass hoarding is not fake it's real and genuine awesome thing to do if you can afford it! 18F8A770-48A1-41E6-8C63-5B2373F22F7A.jpeg B04739E1-EF5C-4CAA-96EF-7F356DDF8973.jpeg 0B5A074F-75BA-4566-A9FB-3466F883F448.jpeg 59CF78F1-4D71-4359-B0DE-11E17A93B9D8.jpeg 5A20685C-90EF-4F4F-8263-8F0E36B4D86F.jpeg FB1BC930-BCEC-440D-91CE-2071E3DFDA23.jpeg 48D3CBE4-1C58-4A96-9201-8717FC39990A.jpeg 6C3479BF-D67F-40FD-8D1F-99D541890077.jpeg D0C4AF67-B3B9-489E-8F37-D6388B2FB89E.jpeg 517067DE-0D45-4DF7-BBD0-EDE22CCE0B06.jpeg 18F8A770-48A1-41E6-8C63-5B2373F22F7A.jpeg B04739E1-EF5C-4CAA-96EF-7F356DDF8973.jpeg 0B5A074F-75BA-4566-A9FB-3466F883F448.jpeg 59CF78F1-4D71-4359-B0DE-11E17A93B9D8.jpeg 5A20685C-90EF-4F4F-8263-8F0E36B4D86F.jpeg FB1BC930-BCEC-440D-91CE-2071E3DFDA23.jpeg 48D3CBE4-1C58-4A96-9201-8717FC39990A.jpeg 6C3479BF-D67F-40FD-8D1F-99D541890077.jpeg D0C4AF67-B3B9-489E-8F37-D6388B2FB89E.jpeg 517067DE-0D45-4DF7-BBD0-EDE22CCE0B06.jpeg E77A7C44-84BD-49DC-8FE9-990F4E4D7BBC.jpeg 2192344D-F358-4E88-8C1F-09B4F1B39273.jpeg 18F8A770-48A1-41E6-8C63-5B2373F22F7A.jpeg B04739E1-EF5C-4CAA-96EF-7F356DDF8973.jpeg 0B5A074F-75BA-4566-A9FB-3466F883F448.jpeg 59CF78F1-4D71-4359-B0DE-11E17A93B9D8.jpeg 5A20685C-90EF-4F4F-8263-8F0E36B4D86F.jpeg FB1BC930-BCEC-440D-91CE-2071E3DFDA23.jpeg 48D3CBE4-1C58-4A96-9201-8717FC39990A.jpeg 6C3479BF-D67F-40FD-8D1F-99D541890077.jpeg D0C4AF67-B3B9-489E-8F37-D6388B2FB89E.jpeg 517067DE-0D45-4DF7-BBD0-EDE22CCE0B06.jpeg E77A7C44-84BD-49DC-8FE9-990F4E4D7BBC.jpeg 2192344D-F358-4E88-8C1F-09B4F1B39273.jpeg A8F5B659-0E5B-43F6-9464-DA3BC6B95644.jpeg CD626676-23CD-4721-8DDD-3552AC8E52AB.jpeg A802E300-637B-497F-AAB9-4FB77DAF6639.jpeg E59EA16E-A4A0-4723-9021-1315F4A43BD2.jpeg DEF0F9D7-B00B-415B-9BA0-892AF2C23034.jpeg E43F1DB2-0ACA-491B-A582-198A67EEAF06.jpeg 3978F741-DD6C-4997-BACB-694B77AD52DC.jpeg

    I only have 5 basses. There was a time though when I had about 50 guitars. It got to the point where I spent more time fussing over them than playing them. I had to force myself to sell off stuff that I hadn't even looked at in years. lol
