Sometimes I wonder if 6 string basses are about image. Some people buy them never using that higher string and rarely using the lower. I'm not condoning extra-strings...sometimes I feel like I need that high string and other times I feel like I need a lower string too, but some people buy them as some kind of status or image thinking people will think they are good. I especially wonder if some people lie on this forum stating they have a 6-string hoping people will think they are good. That "women with 6-strings" thread seemed good at first, but then it started to sound like she was trying to get everybody to think she was good. At first, I thought she was trying to figure out how other women overcome the small-hand over big neck thing, but it was just a very sneaky way of bragging.
