I heard that Les Claypool used a upright bass D string?

Have you checked music stores for cello strings or upright basses?

And post pics.

They're called Double-basses u imboseil besides dbl basses go up to 45" in scale length so that's still 9" too short, try piano wire, they usually have that on big reels so ask them to cut of about 55" of it and with it being piano wire, u can get it in pretty much any gauge, although that will only work if ur strings don't need ball-ends.

And i saw a bass on sum weird bass website like this exept it was fretted, it was called the MRB (or "minimal range bass")

^ If it doesn't have a ball end, why not put two tuning machines on the end.

Imbecile

stop having a go at anyone saying Upright basses. Everyone still knows what they mean by it

Man someone needs to make a vid of an armless and legless ethiopian watching a donut roll down the hill, and then he starts using his teeth to pull him towards the donut. That would just be good filmaking right there.
