    why??????
    One neck is in EADG and the other, er, isn't. (I cannot remember whether the second neck is tuned low BEAD or piccolo.)

    I’m not sure I understand why you need two necks with two tunings. I’d just write a different bassline and save my shoulder ;)

    Looks like the one he's playing is BEAD and the upper one is EADG, from the thickness of the strings.

    For probably the first and only time ever, I would have to say that the obviously sensible solution is a 5-string...

    Probably, for the dreaded bass solo spot on the setlist - in truth, an opportunity for the rest of the band to nip off stage for a piss, a ciggie, groupie gratification or, possibly, all three.

    For his solo spot, Living Colour's Doug Wimbish lays down a loop then noodles over it in something akin to a music trade show product demonstration.

    The only acceptable Bass Solo is Han’s cousin.

    Bass solo. Just because you can, you don't.
