I can't believe one doesn't already exist (and if it does, I apologize for my stupidity, and once again curse the inelegance of the TB Search Engine). Also, I don't know whether this is really the "official" anything...but since I can't find any other evidence of an 8-string (octave courses) bass club, I hereby pronounce myself de facto founder & president for life! (Edit: Okay, I found there is a precedent, so I concede to WarriorJoe7. See below.) If you have an 8-string (octave courses) bass, post a pic & join the club! (PM me for your chronologically derived member #) We're an inclusive club, so 10-string (5x2) or 12-string (6x2) basses are welcome. For that matter, triple course basses -- e.g., 12-string (4x3) -- are welcome also, but I think those guys already have their own club. Any bass with multiple courses -- groups of strings primarily intended to be struck/fretted simultaneously -- are welcome to this club. What it's not meant to be is a club for 8-string Extended Range Instruments (i.e., F#-B-E-A-D-G-C-F). I think they have their own club already too. Sorry, octave courses only. Here's mine: It's a frankenbass of sorts: Schaller bridge, EMG pickups, EMG BTC electronics, Gotoh machines, Warmoth body, & a custom-made Michael Dolan neck. Who's next? Let's see those pics!
