I recently got a new ib sr485 adn i really like it, but im still in the transistion stage where i kinda feel more comfortable w/ teh four. I dont use it soley for the sub-E tonality, there are other things i like about it, like: goin a string down from B to F#, Gettin the back end of the Am scale, etc... But i went from a beginer four to a better 5, so i have a better quality guitar now.

I like the mighty 6. I have long fingers so I prefer playing with big necks. I own (and play) a classical guitar. The neck is like a tree! So I like large (but not too large!) necks. Take a look at my sig. That's my dream bass

Does anybody else think that a woman becomes like ten times more attractive when you know that she plays bass?

I think chicks that play bass are way more attractive after they learn how than before they could play bass

I have both a four- and a five-string. i like both, but being the slow self-teacher, i haven't completely figured out how to use that low B string for anything other than playing a couple of worship songs without moving my hand back and forth (and a couple skillet songs). *cry for help* anyone happen to know where i can find some stuff online for 5-string?

btw, ladies become more attractive when i find they play bass. even more so if they're good. same with drums. but not with guitar.
