Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

Well, the purpose is to... play bass. Doesn't matter how many strings it has, it's purpose is still to play bass. Maybe he just never felt the need for a certain string, or uses it as a gimmick. Max Cavalera never strings the b/e strings on his guitars.

+1, John Campbell also had a custom 3 string bass made for him because he never used the G string.

Well it does actually look cool in my opinion. I think it's stupid though.

I like it. If he doesn't use that string, then why not have a 3-string?
