    wow, i can't imagine what case that is - it almost looks like they screwed up when they made it.

    congrats on your bass, dude :).

    My 5 is getting finished....

    ...and the speakers are a stop-gap until I can strike a deal with Mark.

  9. I have never picked up anything more then a five because of my small hands. Some of your hands aren't much bigger then mine so how the hell do you play seven strings o_O ?

    Not very well!! No, it's very easy to play. Dont let small hands hinder you!!
     
  11. I'm gasing for a 6 but all my friends are like, "If it goes higher then the G string it's not bass." but I don't listen to them. The local musicshop man (Lu) said that...heh.

    my hands are pretty small - my middle finger is only 3 inches long, and my pinkie is a tad less than 2. it's all about technique and a well crafted instrument.

    That's even smaller than me, and I always thought my hands were small. I have no excuse for not getting a seven as my next bass now. You don't look like a small guy in your pics, but maybe that's just my assumption that anyone who can play that doubleneck of yours must be huge...
