: : Hi, just got a Conklin 7 string. It doesn't get in the way, but it does take a bit of getting used to. Its well worth it due to the incredible range you have at your disposal. I think that whether you need "extra" strings or not just depends on what you feel like playing. The neck on the Conklin is a monster, but it is actually forcing me to improve my technique, to be less sloppy. I find it easier to play with the bass a little bit higher than my fender, but nothing outrageous. Hope that helps. B

: thanks and wow a 7 string. Is the seventh string a low F# or a high F?

It's a high F. I will at some point try out different tunings, but for now I left it in fourths. I have to get used to extended range. -B
