    I don't have one, and I don't really want one at this time. Most of what I'm doing right now is suited to passive 4-strings. I'm not so short-sighted though to think that that will always be the case, just right now I don't need one really.

    What happened to CARROTS options in TB polls???


    I don´t have any, and never played one before. It would be nice, though.

    Too heavy and I don't care for the shape.

    I enjoy black basses. That ones quite attractive. Think you can handle a 9 string? ;) The highest string looks so thin, wont it feel liek you are plucking a guitar string? That must feel awkward at first.
