The other day I posted a response to the thread about "why would anybodybody want a four string".And ,just to REALY play devil's advocate,I mentioned this German Made three string bass.(Hotwire-bass.com). I was very surprised that NOBODY responded to that at all. So I'll post it again here,just for fun. Check this out ,Y'all. I think its cool. They guy who had it made seems to have just done it to spite everybody who plays more than four. But what a great way to make your point!He even performs and records with it. I'd post A link,but ,I ain't that smart. (maybe thats why I LIKE the idea of only three strings). Go to HOTWIRE-Bass.com. Click on "custom shop" and scroll down a bit and..........there it is!
