    yay! i've wanted to try a 7 string for awhile. i've been on 6's for a couple years. then i found a REALLY good deal on CL.

    not only is this the most strings i've had on a bass, it's WAY the nicest, most expensive bass i've ever owned. i think it's the most expensive (original price) single piece of gear i've ever owned actually.

    freaking ECSTATIC.

    and who DOESN'T like a yellow towel background? don't panic like a MF.

    Holy cow! That's a big'un! I'm both happy and a little frightened for you ;)

    So how do you tune that? Are the highest strings C and F or B and E? If it were me, I'd have to have it B/E because I play guitar too and it seems natural to me.

    Damn. I'm a big groove tools fan and I was just thinking today about what a blue refinish would look like on one. Beautiful!

    John Turner only needed seven strings.

    Oh wait...

    Nice grab- probably the only blue GT-7 in the world.

    Budha Bill Dickens only needed....

    = WIN!!

    yeah. it's gonna take me a minute to get used to the neck.... but it's so nice that the strings are about the same spacing as a 6.

    sigh...... love this thing.

    biggah = bettah. yay american upbringings!

    i have it tuned B E A D G F..... think i'm gonna stay with that. i like the simplicity of universal patterns throughout the entire neck. i'm lazy. also.... i can barely play bass.... i'm not trying to be mediocre at more than one instrument right now.

    i'm a goof about bass terms..... balance as in neck dive/no neck dive? if that's what you mean then it does dive a bit with a strap. the strap pegs are recessed Strap Lock receptacles, and the upper one is on the side of the horn... dunno if that's why but it does dive a bit. actually plays pretty fast for such a wide neck tho.

    thanks PedOOOOOlah!

    AWESOME id name. you rokk.

    yeah.... i have a Dean Edge 6 that's close to the same color..... but i really do like the way the body color looks against the dark wood on the fingerboard and the neck.

    thanks!

    Lol, its cool dude. Yeah I was talking about balance, I was just curious because I've always wanted one but I'm a little guy so if it wasn't balanced to some degree I just wouldn't be able to cope. But what you said is very intriguing, I think I see a groove tools in my future...

    yeah.....i'm about 6' 4", so i always felt i looked funny with a 4 stringer anyways. the BEST thing i think i've ever seen (musically) is watching a Mr Bungle show and seeing Trevor Dunn play a 6 string. back when it seems like nobody outside of Claypool rocked a 6. Trevor Dunn is MAYBE 4 feet tall..... on a good day. at least that's what it looked like with his left arm at full extension to reach first position playing.

    awesome.

    wish i was littler.

    Cool looking bass, congrats!!!
     
  17. Jealsousy. I was just talking about how I had never owned a blue bass despite it being my favorite color. I also told my self : "Self, don't start with that ERB thing. 6 is enough. 5 was too much, 4 was enough, 5 wasn't enough and now 6s are your thing. Get out while you can"

    And then you do this to me.
