Bass guitars have four strings...  Get well soon Ariel, you sound rough.

While the purest in me would generally agree, my tumultuous youth will never let me forget witnessing the overbearing awesomeness that was Les Claypool unequivocally owning the attention and awe of thousands of people with a 6-string fretless bass. And it was no anomaly, I saw it on several occasions. Pure genius.

@Kris C Oh, I don't doubt it.  I've seen a five-string bass.  I guess what we can all take from this is that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to instruments these days.
