Yuck, that's a bass.
This one has 6 strings.
Everything without 5 strings looks the same to me!

Come on, Skunk! What about Scruggs?!
Bass pwns you!

What about Roy Smeck?
Stringbean? He was known to tote a little too.
I recall Jackson and Hondo, both, making M-16 looking guitars in the 80's. I'm sure there were a few others, too.......I passed on a Hondo-made one, about 4 years ago, for only $200......For a Hondo, I figured even $200 was too much for it....no matter what shape it was.
So, you can now officially be wailing on a six-string or a bass before you shoot your prey when hunting? I wonder, does it have to be connected to an amp, or do they provide headphones for when in the blind ?
Those are pretty darn cool guitars, man.
BTW, does no one want to be seen on stage with you, Skunk?
It kind of reminds me of the Gene Simmons "Axe" bass.
If only they had it in a gibson SG, I would have a nice match for my guitar
Too bad dirtbag's bassist didn't have one of them.
Might of saved his life.
So, do we get to debate which is the best guage for guitar strings? I like .012's better than .011's or .010's.
Big and slow vs. light and fast, eh?
I like it! It would be sweet playing an arrangement for "Moonlight Sonata" on that
Do you know how had it is to play that on the guitar? I have been praticing it for 6 months, and can only do about half of it reasonably well .
I run a .46 to .09, works well for my sg
Ted Nugent should show up in this thread.
Sorry guys: I'm with GregGry on this: light'n'fast is the way to go! High speed/low drag wins for guitar strings!
And it shouldn't be too hard to make a six-string version of the first pic. Of course, buying another Steinberger will probably make Spoon kill me (especially since I'm already picking up a bouzouki)...
What does it mean when the banjo player drools out both corners of his mouth?
The stage is level...
I like .010s myself, .009s break too easy...
Well, before we discuss gauge we gotta mention whether it's for electric or acoustic... On my electric, I go with Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky, .046-.009. Sadly don't have an acoustic at the moment. :-(
Maybe this is what they were talking about when they wrote
"Killed with a bullet from a six string gun."
I believe that's a gun from Gundam. You really shouldn't be able to operate it properly unless your torso comes off from your lower body and a plane flies inside and folds up before you can move much.
As a little kid I built more than my fair share of Gundam model kits.
They should ban those 6 string hi-cap ones all together..."no honest man needs more than 4 strings..."
For a less "evil" looking one see John Fogerty's baseball bat guitar...
Dave R asks:
I prefer Ernie Ball Super Slinkies (.009-.042). But it just suites my style of playing more.......EVH, George Lynch, Dave Mustaine stuff. I also run .009-.052 on my Ibanez Universe 7-string, though. On my 5-string electric basses, I prefer light gauges as well. I don't care for steel string acoustics (despite having an Ovation 6-string and Ovation 5-string acoustic bass)......for acoustic, I prefer the sweet tones of a nylon-string Takamine.
.010 vs .012...whatever. Fret placement fret placement fret placement.
Good point. I prefer .012's on ACOUSTIC guitars. I don't like the sound of light strings on an acoustic. Sounds thin.
Of course, even on electric guitars, I tend to agree with Dicky Betts, who said you should play the fattest strings you can handle. I like fat sounds. You know how thick Stevie Ray Vaughn played, dontcha?
Prefer my bass that way, too. I like a "church organ" sound. Lotsa low. 'Course, you have to turn up the treble now and then to play some of the modern stuff.
Spoken like a true tactical player.
