In the wide world of Bass guitar, there have to be extremes. Biggest amps, craziest solos, most insane feats of bass destruction, whatever. This is a thread devoted to that. Post pics, tell stories, whatever.

I remember because the kid playing the "Slap that Bass" song stopped playing in the middle and it pissed me off...

I don't know about you guys, but i really, really dig extended range basses. I want to build my own 12 string one of these days. I like them so much, it's ridiculous.

I think the weirdest bass i've seen is an 18 string single-course, or an 18 string being a 6 string with two octave strings per.

http://www.12stringbass.com/misc_reviews.htm

Edt: I take that back. The "alien 2 string" is the weirdest thing.

BTW, i can't find that picture of the 18 single course for the life of me.

Oh god not the alien. I was the first peson to post it.

Damn you for reviving it.

That guy with the alien bass comes across as some sort of idiot:

"The E and the A string is all a bass player should need to do the job properly,If you want to play fancy stuff on the skinny strings then you should be playing lead guitar."

no... look at the bridge's pins, not the strings you can visually see coming out of it. It is clearly a 12 string bass.
