    You could have just said "because a neck that wide looks totally badass," lol. That's honestly about as deep as my reasons for wanting a bass with more than 6 strings on it go... :D

    Welcome aboard, man - anyone crazy enough to put that many strings on one neck is bound to be an interesting member. :wavey:

    Hello every one,it is kool to see that you Kat's seem sincerly interested in the world of ERB instruments(Basses & Guitars).well I don't want to side track the subject of the thread but here is a pic of guitarist DaLawn Simpson(he plays in various music projects with me)with his 9 string guitar.

    That guitar is bad-ass. From where did he get it? Got any sound clips?

    From Jesse at Ergo Instruments.
    I thought those guitars would be pretty recognizable by now. :scratch:

    Hmm, I've seen half a dozen Ergo's, but never one like that. That one floats my boat, now if only the headstock was a mite thicker and the bridge pickup was angled a tad… :idea:

    He uses that guitar on Jauqo's CD, "The Low C# Theory".Jauqo pioneered the ,195 C# 17hz string.Granted,I am one of about 5 players using the string(not a big item),but Jauqo uses his sub bass tuned C#0-F#0-B0-E1 on the CD and DaLawn uses that guitar.It's like Crimson gone mad .Ernie Adams on drums(Dimeola's drummer).

    that's sick.

    anyone else find it weird how they place those insanely sweet guitars right on top of coarse, rough pavement?

    It's odd for sure, I wouldn't mind knowing why they do that actually.

    How do you notate this and what does it sound like? Can you post some quick sheet music you made yourself?
