I am thinking about taking up the bass, and am looking for a bass and rig. I've been playing guitar for many years, but recently have wanted to explore the low end. I am primarily interested in 7 string basses. I tried a Sukop 7 string and LOVED it the other day, but I'm still wondering what my other options are. I'm looking for a high end 7 string. I also haven't ruled out a 6 string, and have been looking at MTD Americans. Any suggestions?
