I see your 11 string bass, and I raise you a 12 string bass.

Can't show you any videos of anyone playing it, BUT! Here's Jean Baudin playing a 9 string bass: http://www.jeanbaudin.com/vids/jeanbaudin_mario.mov

How is that thing tuned!? I mean you have the standard 4 - EADG, 5 adds a low B - BEADG, 6 adds a high C - BEADGC , are the rest of the strings all tuned in fourths too? And I assume there is no string Lower than the low B...

Holy crap, I just counted the frets, there are like 38!

Hmmm the lower & higher frets are slanted aswell like Rusty Cooley's 7 string guitar. The strings are really close together at the end of the neck too. I dunno about the tuning they could probally goto a low g on the bottom string then the higher ones could act as guitar strings for cords, I dunno I recon Leon would know more about that. I dunno how your ment to play that thing... probally like Adam Fluera whatever his name is when he plays his double neck guitar fingering with both hands. You could play some massive sweep picking solos on it!

Perhaps you play it like those stick basses, it looks like the guy in the first picture is playing it that way. Tapping with both hands doing a rhythm and a lead part.

Hehe I think the face is because he's straining. I wouldn't ever film myself if I looked like that no matter how good I was on guitar.
