"For me, the bass happens to be the crayon I picked out of the box. If I picked up the guitar, the banjo, the trumpet, similar sounds would be coming out of me. That's just what I chose to paint my pictures with - the bass." Les Claypool
Carl Thompson 6-string bass - There's no chance whatsoever I would be able to play a 6-string fretless well, or even remotely decently. Still, hearing what Les Claypool does with this one is freaking awesome. Luckily enough these are prohibitively expensive, so I won't do anything stupid.
