WTD- 7 String or Baritone

Post by Basket Case »

As the title says, I'm after something that will get me to low B or A. I'd prefer to trade one or a combination of the following for it with someone in Auckland or north of.

I have an LTD B205 Spalted Maple 5-string bass. https://www.kbbmusic.co.nz/shop/esp-ltd ... uitar.html

A Fernandes Ravelle Deluxe. Black with DiMarzio Transition Pickups. Locking Gotoh Tuners.

MIM Precision Bass. Has DiMarzio 'Split-P' DP127 pickups. Neck has been replaced with a nice Mighty Mite maple-board P-Bass neck. Comes with the original pickups and neck (there's something up with the truss rod).

I also have a high-end turntable if that interests anybody. Micro-Seiki with Ortofon 2m Blue cartridge.

Hit me up if you have something you would part with or want more info regarding any of the things I've listed.

Seems a bit that way. I thought there might be someone here who went through an 'experimental phase' and had a 7 string gathering dust.

most 7's are only 25.5-would not a 6'er of that scale do the trick with big strings?

I've tried that in the past and never liked the results.

I had one of my old Jems set up for A standard and it felt like it was built for it so definitely can be done with a lil mucking around. I've just always liked the option of having E or D Standard on standby when that extra string is too brutal for the campfire singalong.

I find the G string to be a bit of a problem. A thick unwound string just doesn't play nice. It sounds like a really bad case of stratitis.

I have a couple of sets of 10s with a wound G for sale :)
