Now, I've resigned to a fate: I will own a Conklin GT7 in Wine Finish. That's not a debatable thing. But this is: I've been mulling it over, and I'm wondering, what should I get first, a 5 string, 6 string, or just go strait to the Conklin, do not pass go. Whenever anyone decides to talk instruments, it envariable ends up with people dumping on my Seven string, so then I'm really bent on getting the seven. However, beings that I'm in a rock band, I'm starting to wonder if the 7 is the smartest thing to get next. Should I get a less stringy bass? Or go to the power of the 7? It's really buggin me, because I kind of want to figure out what I'm going to spend my money on, or should be saving for. Right now it's the GT7, but, I'm starting to doubt if that would be the most intelligent move at the moment. But, I AM leaning towards the 7. It's just something I think, no wait, I know I need. (Psst...if you really want to help me...tell me I'm supposed to get the 7!) But seriously, got any opinions on the matter?
