allllllllll the freaking time. but i'm not that good. i like having all that range in one hand position.

i know it only gives you 5 more half steps to play with over a 5 string, but that is essential for chording stuff. sounds too thick and poo based if you chord butt loads on the lower strings. i tried 5's and 7's, i've always been more comfy on a 6.

if i WAS going to use a 5'er, i'd tune it EADGC 'cause i like the extra high range more than the lower range.

In 13 years of playing, I've never bonded with a bass like I have with this one...and I've been through a bunch. It's my baby.

I have a bunch of others, mostly weirdo cheapies, need to dig around for pics.

Dug thru my pics, seems like the only reason I ever take pics of basses is because I'm selling them. :facepalm:

Here's the two I found that I actually still have; will have to follow up with more pics later.

You mean under string tension? What's the reasoning behind this? I've always heard the exact opposite. Makes sense to me that damage to the bass anywhere along the string path would be exacerbated by the strings being under tension. Ever since I read the "how to ship an instrument" chapter of Dan Erlewine's book and saw that he agreed with the "always slack the strings before shipping" method, I've taken it as gospel.

:idk:


Its just one of those things that got out there thanks to things like Erlewine's book and became "common knowledge", but wasn't actually based on anything other than it seemed to makes sense.

The point of keeping it under correct tension is that a neck is at its most stable with equal and opposing forces. Is it that big of a deal? maybe not, but you'll notice the majority of major manufacturers will ship basses with the strings at the correct tension.

YES!!! I am with you on this. I've been tempted to get a cheap 5 for exactly this purpose.

It probably doesn't make much difference for a lot of electric instruments, especially anything Fender-style. But I've seen a bunch of headstock breaks (Gibsons/anything made of soft wood) and some bridge issues (acoustics/non-string-thru bridges) in instruments that were shipped in hard cases and arrived without any obvious damage to the outside. String tension definitely plays a big role in those.

I used to go with this...but with my Eden rig and having ditched the Boss GT10-B and getting some better quality FX, I've noticed my chords sound A LOT clearer when the root is anywhere above that middle C....which gives me a good octave of chords to mess with. And now my low end just fucking rocks. I was slamming some low B's in Church the other day. Cock hanging out and everything. RUUUUUUUUUUUMBLING. And I was all like "fuck you organist with yo big Catholic ass organ pipe thingers. The 80's was a shittyest ass time for music what with all the fretlessness and the lame modulations and stuff.....but the 1580's were even worse because the organ was outdated even then."

I fucking loathe organs.

:idk: I love my four bangers [I am actually amazed I accumulated so many...] and all but I can't deal with not having a low B for a lot of the stuff I play.
