    Who has the single neck bass with the most strings? The quest begins. (please submit a photo). Already disqualified myself as all I have is a five string
     
  2. Probably Garry Goodman with the Adler 11-string. :eek:

    Edit: I guess 12-strings do not count?

    Allen Woody had a 18 string Modulus, I believe.

    I can already feel this thread getting ugly. :D

  5. Yup, Allen Woody had an 18-string, but it was a tripled 6.

    I don't know about that, it's not that hard to play the octave stings or the root strings by them selves, with an 8 string and some pinky muting I can play songs like the Peter Gun with out a guitarist. :D

    You win.

    Prog, yours is not exactly normal either ... :D

    But when I saw the pig gif, I knew it would make a
    weird avatar.

    Blodwyn Pig was one of my fave bands, and the cover of Ahead Rings Out is my av from time to time.

    Back to your regularly scheduled, 'Battle of the giant
    lawnmower loading ramps" thread.

    Hey, no need to throw stuff, j/k ....

    Too "lord of the flies" for me, personally.


    Is this non-doubled/tripled strings? If so, someone search for "NAMM" in Basses for the picture of that Adler 11 string.

    :bawl:

    You are, of course, right. :oops:
    Now I know why you are called Danksalot.

    I think the Adler pics may have been lost in the upgrade...
    not sure ...

    For those who are Interested,Garry Goodman with his Adler 11 string.
     
  19. A quick google search came up with this for the 18 string bass:
    <a href="http://www.12stringbass.net/master.htm?http://www.12stringbass.net/custom15.htm">Here</a>

    Also, that 11 string is amazing.

    The only thing that vexes me about that Adler is why it wasn't made headless. Seems like it would be textbook definition of neck dive.
