    I bought a 7-string conk (from notduane[thanks!]and after playing for a week or two I tuned the c to b and the f to e
    like a conventional guitar tuning. I played years of noodle guitar and amassed tons of "stuff" that I thought I'd only use around the campfire etc. All of a sudden I'm in a new "hot lick" world with my bass playing! Life is good...

    You nut! :D I'm so glad you're enjoyin' youself with that beautiful beast!

    Boy. This here new millenium is bringin' all kinds o' wacky things.
    I stayed up for a couple days this weekend thinkin & playin' / playin' & thinkin'.
    I finally came to an "Ockham's Razor" kinda' truth: I'm gonna' get me an upright! :)

    ND, That sounds good, but you'll have to change your "buy every string made" ways, 'cause strings for an upright will REALLY burn your credit cards. SD

    Yeah I know strings for DB's are up there (one LaBella set goes for dang near $300 :eek: ).
    But don't forget, by day I'm a $$$oftware developer :p .

    It's funny you mention that. Saturday I got bored and started thinkin'...:rolleyes:
    "What if I replace the GHS tapes on the Dean with the TI Flats on the Yamaha?
    Put that spare set of Roto RS88-LD's for the Rob Allen on the Yamaha.
    Swap those Roto RS-88EL's on the Ripper with some TI Jazz Round JR364's?"
    Kinda' like "musical strings" :confused:...:D:D:D Oh, I kill me :p !!!
    About 4 o'clock Sunday mornin', I finally realized - you've taken this
    BG string thing about as far as you can.
    - Back went the TI Jazz Flat JF344's on the Yamaha.
    - Back went the Roto RS88-EL's on the Ripper.
    - I did put a new set of TI JF344's on the Dean :) .
    - Of course, I didn't mess with the Rob Allen and the TI Acousticores (perfection! :D ).
