    The Icon is very light also. I have been told it is nearly the same spec's as the original to include sound. I do not play with a pick either and have tried to with the Icon-just doesn't feel right to me but I need to learn to use one.

    Yeah, I much prefer my fingers, but I suppose there's a time and place when only a pick will do. Always good to be well-rounded! I used to play about 25% of the time with a pick, but anymore I can't make it through a whole song without ditching the pick and going back to my fingers... so I guess I ought to work on it too!

    haha-I wish playing with a pick was all that I had to work on...my hero (one of 'em) was Jerry Jemmott, always saw him use his fingers. I feel "connected" with the bass when I use my fingers-probably why I like the uke.

    I played with a pick a bit back in my younger days when I wanted to be Chris Squire... well, THAT didn't work out! But yeah, I always feel more connected when I use my fingers too. Jerry Jemmott is a great player. I like George Porter Jr. too, but I'm even less accomplished with my thumb than I am with a pick! I try to do a little of everything though... "Jack of all trades, master of none", you know.

    Probably best to post this here!

    I'm primarily a bass player and my main bass is a 7 string from Sei Bass in London www.seibass.com

    This pic was taken for the "Basses on the sofa" thread on the UK bass forum Basschat,co.uk



    L-R:
    Conklin GT7 (which has been converted to fretless),
    Jackson 'Kip Winger' (my old faithful bass from the early 90's!).
    AC Guitars Recurve Singlecut 9 string (built in Moffat, Scotland www.acguitars.co.uk).
    Sei Offset Flamboyant 7 string (my main bass, hence my username!)
    James Tyler 4 string


    I get asked why 7 strings and it was a gradual move over a lot of years! I started playing 4 strings and then went to a fretless 6 which I played exclusively for a few years. From there I got the Conklin 7 off of eBay and stayed there. The 9 is a small leap from there. The 7 and 9 are all strung in 4ths which does make getting around a lot easier than it seems. The necks seem huge, but they're pretty straightforward to play.
