    What string tree is on your bass?

    EDIT: I just realized that option 9 (Two trees: other) should not be in the poll since options 7 and 8 pretty much cover all the two tree options.

    EDIT: Highest strings are the treble strings.
     
  2. All kinds, but the best one is on my Roscoe Beck IV, it's a Hipshot.

    The worst ones I've seen are on fivers....the single skinny bar type that runs across all five strings, held on by two little wood screws. Skimpy design IMO.

    My Jazz Deluxe has 2, on the A, D, and G. My P and my Peavey Foundation has them on just the D and G. My conklin is tilt back, so none on that or my franken-jazz which also has a tilt-back headstock.

    You pick your basses, it's multiple choice (however many you can vote for).

    One with no tree and an angled headstock, one with a tree on the D and G strings.

    Both my SX and my Glaub have one round tree on the D and G strings.
     
  9. My Ibanez Musician has a tree inbetween the A and D strings, my other basses don't have trees

    One with angled headstock and no tree and two with a single tree for all five strings. Although I have had no issues with this style of single tree I kind of agree with Templar, if anything it looks cheap.
