  • Extended Range Guitars

    Who's into ER? What is meant by that is instruments that have that little bit extra - usually 5+ string basses, 7+ string guitars, etc. Seems I've an affinity for them. Here's mine:

     

    5-string bass:

    BBQ


    7-string guitar:

    Danedetto 7

     

    5-string mandolin

    Fender eMando

     

    12/Bass VI bouble-neck:

    Verne's Double-Dano

     

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em!

    Ibanez SR305 bass

    I'm a 5-string bass player.  I have no 7 or 12 string guitars, however...

      If 6+ strings or extra long scale length is extended range, what would my 24" fretless 3 string guitar be? Or my 2 string bass? Unstended?

      I've spent as much time playing those as I have my 7 string guitar and 8 string bass.

    I remember when The Presidents of the USA had a couple hits on their weird 2 and 3 string instruments. I thought those were so cool, making catchy music without being able to play a "full" chord.

      I never really cared for 5 str basses or 7 str guitars, just too confusing to my pea brain thats been playing the normal 4 & 6's for so long. A 5 str bass definately has its practical applications tho.

      A 5 str mando or fiddle, or an 8 str lap, I could prob get used to quicker because I havn't spent as much time on those instruments. I used to play with a fantastic elderly fiddle player who made his own 5 str fidddle. He played some really mellow and fat sounding double stops down there on those low C & G strings.
