    The fact that there's over 1500 ppl who will openly fess up to playing 6-string bass is really cool.

    I don't have one, though I did for a spell.

    I DO have a 7-string, which was in the store when I went to look at the 6-string I wanted to replace the other one with. And it needs a lil professional love but is playable and gets played. Soon as I figure out how to get the preamp to stop picking radio stations (didn't start doing that till a few months ago), I'll play it even more...and have ideas on a solo or small ensemble show to do with it.

    We live in good times, instrument-wise

    Started teaching my son, so I got a 5-string so most band options would be open to him. I actually starting getting into Latin afro-cuban music and it's startling how much 5-string (or at least sub-E) is in it. When did that happen?
  8. still on fretted 4 string bass because i have no additional finger,....so i guess i dont need additional string either hahahahaha,..kidding

  9. Current situation....

    Always 5 string with my originals band. Need the low b and don’t want to give up the g string. I jam on my fender acoustic 4 a lot at home though it’s great for writing and practicing but haven’t had any acoustic gigs lately.

    Dingwall NG2 5 string (main player)

    4 string fretted Lakland 44-02 and a fretless Squire PBass also 4 string.
  16. I have a Lakland 3tbs hollow body, a MIM Fender Okeumo how ever you spell it Jazz, and a MIM Fender P bass. 61802402_300540760898174_5656814564143005696_o.jpg
  17. I voted 4 and 5 string fretted. Most of mine are 4 string. But I just acquired an Ibanez ergodyne EDA-905 (pawnshop rescue) and I have really been enjoying it...a LOT. So much that I haven`t really picked up the 4 strings since I got the ergodyne.
