8 String On Ebay

Recommended Posts

argh.. that could have looked pretty neat and tidy too if only he'd left the lowest string as a single...

Edit: upon closer inspection, he should probably have replaced the nut instead of just adding extra slots too, and the path ot the sting to the tuner at the tip on the headstock veers a little too close to another post too

Don't you usually put the higher octave strings on the treble side? Or doesn't it really matter?

Well its different on differnt 12 string guitars so i dont see why it cant be on a bass.

Rickenbacker originally did it with the treble strings on the bass side although a lot of people string them the other way, its a subtley different sound:


That doesnt make the bass any less of a turd
