    That is how i refer to the fretboard of my SX 6-string Jazz - The Flight Deck. Surprisingly easy to play, though.

    Friend of mine played a seven-string for a little while, but he said it was just too heavy. He could do maybe one set with it, but not a whole show.

    fun stuff, @rtslinger! and you're making that ax speak! :thumbsup:


    for me: more strings (than four) is almost as confusing as seeing frets/lines on the fingerboard. "what are all these extra things doing here --- what am i supposed to do with them?" and i'm done with "heavy." but i sure do enjoy seeing/hearing other cats making those axes play.

    The metal bits make a Precision Bass out of an Imprecision Bass :D

    When I got a Rogue "Beatle Bass" on sale, I had to relearn how to play a four. I was kinda like: "Where did all those extra things go?" :roflmao:

    I still give in to the temptation to cop Geddy Lee-inspired lines at church a bit too often. The Music Director was not amused, although he didn't accuse me of Rushing my part...

    Definatly worth the $150 sale price (from the ads on the top of the regular Google search). Really even worth the $230 from the regular Google search. Sounds good, the short scale makes it a blast to zip around on.

    Two slight downsides: Pickguard is crude and ugly- not a problem for me since mine now lives in a gig bag pocket, and the variety of medium-scale strings is somewhat limited, but that problem is the same for all Hofner beatle bass-inspired basses, both copies and the originals.

    Bad dad-jokes are my specialty, bada-boom-tss. I'll be here all week.

    I suppose you'll have to deal with it, my poor kids certainly do :smug:

    Good insights, Thanks, maybe I'll need to add to the collection. Have always wanted a viola style bass, maybe its time.
     
  17. I call them training bumps

    I resemble that remark!
    I thought my wife rolling her eyes at me could shake the earth,
    My kids can flip the magnetic poles.

    My wife didn't get my sense of humor when we married... now 36 years later she can keep up with me, bad joke for bad joke, as can my kids.

    My granddaughter is now starting on a life of crime-worthy humor, poor thing.

    I have corrupted three generations now, and I love it!

    I haven't played in front of other people more than twice, but I have feeling future victims will need a good sense of humour.

    I play in front of people a lot, but they still need a good sense of humor, especially that music director...
