    Well, should I get a Warrior, a Conklin, or a Roscoe?

    Sorry Jeff, but everyone knows if you wanna play punk you've got to have a 13 string. You must really want to play like Fieldy with only 9. That's all those are good for.

    The Warrior's and Conklin's are a bit pricey. I'd probably be limited to the Roscoe.

    Other than the GT Conklin's, the only thing from those three I've played are the Roscoe's and they're pretty damn nice.

    If you only wanted to go 8, Hanewinckel does 8's ;)

    So who exactly are you razzing here??

    The multi-stringers?
    The punks?
    The newbies and all their dead horse thread resurrecting??

    And the first nominee in the category of "TalkBass Dry Sarcasm" is for Jeff Wade for the midnight musings of his thread "Best 9 string for punk."
