    I already own a two string bass and I"m not too fond of it :mad: ... I hate it when I break my A and my G!

    Hey, I wrote a message to Tony Levin asking about his 3 string. He was cool enough to give a response:

    << I remember an article about a three-string bass but I can’t find any
    reference to it. Was this ever used for recording or live, and whatever may have happened to it? >>

    Used it a bit, mostly for live playing. Still have it, and it sounds good!
    best wishes, tony levin


    Very cool of him!

    I heard that TL's 3-string was destroyed in a fire? :confused:

    Yes, I could see that... goes to show that you should never trust a rumour. Cool!

    I bet someone with more cash than brains, (or someone Japanese), is going to pay a big chunk for that. It could end up in a museum or The Bass Hall of Fame, since it isn't vintage collectible.

    How long before it shows up on eBay with some ridiculous reserve set?

    Atlansia makes a 2-string, as well as a 1-string and a 3-string. Some very interesting design concepts from Japan. Get the catalog, it's worth a look.
