4 strings 4 life!
I have been rocking the ever loving dog nutts off my 99 dollar pawn shop affinity jazz squier delivered in a hard case 127 what's up which a mint green hotrod pickguart?
Will soon be going back to 4, but BEAD, since there's no way of getting rid of the B string.
These days, it's mostly fretted and fretless fivers. But I still play my 12, my 7, my 6 and even occasionally get out one of my 4 bangers.
The main players
Looks like a gradual return to 4-string fretted - less of the fancy stuff!
I'm an old Rock-N-Roller. I've never touched a 5 String or a 6 String.
Nothing has changed for me.
4-strings, 5-strings and 6-string. Passive and Active. Fretted and Fretless. Foreign and Domestic. Classic and Contemporary. Budget basses and expensive basses. There's not a bass I don't like.
Play mainly a 5 string bass but love playing 4 fretted and fretless (unfortunely in my bands i haven’t much songs that can be played with a fretless bass).
In the last period i’m thinking to go for a 6string bass.. what do you think?
For the last 20 years in my band, mostly a Fender '98 P-Bass Lyte deluxe (fretted 4 string). About 5 years ago I got a 4 string fretless, and then started getting a few more basses (all 4 string). Then about a year ago I got a Squier Bass VI, and that is what I am playing 70% of the time now.
I would like to get a proper 5 string bass - and a fretless Goldtone Micro-bass to match my fretted one.
Pared down to the essentials! Like I said in another post! All are 4 stringers. Tried 5 strings for a awhile but none stuck. Didn’t feel right to me.
1 fretted Fender
1 fretless Fender
1 Breedlove acoustic fretless
4 stringer, for now!
My wife just bought me my first bass, a Yamaha fretted 5-string... so I guess I play a fiver...
The kitty cat in your avatar looks a tad upset.
4 & 5 string fretted all the way! 4 string Ken Smith BSR4MW and a 5 string Sadowsky M5-24.
I own a Squier Bass VI and a Burns Barracuda (Yep, both short scale, with trem... and I play them with a pic... haters gonna hate )
Strictly 4`s (P, J, & PJ) and occasionally the 15 key ebony & ivory type (sacrilege!!) .
My 6 strings are Bass VIs. Like Jack Bruce on Fresh Cream and Disraeli Gears.
I ain't hating.
I love my Ps and I've developed a newfound appreciation for my J, but I rock my Bass VIs with flats and a pick. I stuck Staytrems on them both though. I don't need a tremolo on anything except a Fender amp when playing guitar...
