    Wow, between that bass and a basson cab. He has to have a strong back.
  5. As a general rule, you shouldn't try to play any instrument if the neck is wider than your head :rollno:

    If you play a beach gig, it can double as a surf board afterwards. :D

    Actually, I think bashing mega string basses in prohibited. :scowl: Mods, please have mercy on me. :bag:

    That picture looks like a groom standing arm in arm with his new fat bottomed bride at the conclusion of their shotgun wedding. Joy abounds! :D

    It has a quirky, weird appeal to it. I just don't see myself ever needing more than four or five strings though.

    Look at the sadness in his eyes. He is warning us away.

    "Don't do this!" he says. "You will regret it! You can never master this bass.. it masters you."

    He plays it like a piano anyway so , by comparison it's small and portable.
  15. Threads like this restore my faith in trolling... OP, you might try to ask the man himself. I believe that's Garry Goodman*, an accomplished ERB guy. I would never attempt to make music w/such a beast, but asking why one plays a particular instrument is like asking why he/she likes a certain color- the only answer I can imagine is *because*

    The question has to be asked. IS that really a bass? I mean I really doubt if you'll ever catch him playing "Boogie Children" on that thing.

    ha ha ha....that's close to what I was thinking. That look on his face either says "help me, I am being heal hostage" or "I have to poop"

    Because not only can you make people poop their pants looking at it but you can also make them poop themselves with the brown note. Probably cheaper than a grand piano that can hit those super low notes too.

    How about doing it left handed, fretless, and sleeveless? Because some can…not me though but hey that’s why there is chocolate and vanilla.
