  1. I started out on a 83 Washburn force 4 string bass, then moved to a Fender 4 string P bass, then an Ibanez 4 string, and now a Carvin Kiesel 5 string....not sure the 5 string thing will stick but I like it

    Hey, PixelPyrus. That is a beautiful 7 + 7 you have. I'm pretty sure I would not know where to start playing it. It would be fun to play around on, though. Quite a wonderful piece of art, too.

    1. Fender MIM P-Bass
    2. Sterling by Music Man Ray34
    3. Dean Eric Bass Signature Hillsboro
    4. Epiphone Thunderbird

    I used to play a 5-string Jazz bass, but I didn't care for it very much. I generally don't go lower than D, so I just play in Drop D (the Hillsboro is in Drop C, and the T-Bird in Drop C#, though). Might get a fretless 5-string at some point.

  16. I work in another city and go home every couple of weeks so very minimal gear here in SoCal. I have my smaller upright and a 6 string bass that I got here because I want to get back to it since I sold my TRB in 06. It is a Japan Tune bass with 36 scale and 19 mm spacing. Stupid I thought since I do not have large hands. But I kept on playing it and now I can groove with this thing from half to 3rd position and rarely noodling up top. I am playing out 60% upright and 40% electric and the upright playing is improving my electric tone and playing

    I am looking for a 4 stringer like a good Jazz bass or an Ernie Ball.
