10 strings bass guitar | Guitars | Edmonton | Kijiji
One. If you're a drummer.
I'm more concerned about the pickup placement than the number of strings. Swap the positions and we're getting there, but they're a bit too far apart.
I would totally play that, especially for a meat and potato type gig.
Too many for who?
I'd say 75 should be a total limit.
I'm more conservative. Anything over 25, you're just showing off.
Sorry, that looks like a carnival sideshow bass.
Fat shaming isn’t very politically correct, but with a proper diet and exercise..
There is no right or wrong answer here. It's a matter of personal preference. Some enjoy ERBs and some do not.
By the way, it's one of the cheap ones from eBay that usually sell for $410US (about $529CAD). Your local seller almost doubled the price.

That depends... for me?
On a bass? 5/more is too many.
On a guitar? 7/more is too many.
On a banjo? 6/more is too many.
On a mandolin" 9/more is too many.
But, that's just me. If you need/want more strings... well, whatever floats yer boat...
Use as many strings as YOU need, and let everyone else do the same.
If YOU pick it up never play all the strings,then it's too many strings for YOU.
I'd say that when a string change approaches car payment territory in terms of price, you might have too many strings. But if you can afford it...
I've seen bass players who couldn't cope with 4 strings!
Can't tell you how many times I watch a six string player, and I am calculating how I could have played his lines with a four string.
If he's playing covers that were made with a four,it's understood that he's only going to use four strings.
But if he's playing his own compositions I would think that he'd use all the strings.
At least at some point.
I play songs with any combination of my 5 strings. Sometimes I use 2 sometimes all 5.
IMO changing basses around depending on the song is an unnecessary and unwarranted distraction.
I watch cars drive by and calculate how I could get to all those same destinations by walking.
Thirty three strings are too many. Thirty two is fine; thirty three are too many.
