    I've never played a bass (or guitar) "doggy-style"......Just doesn't look comfortable.

    I played one of those, but I became the butt of many jokes.

    The sound had a really heavy bottom end to it.

    It was set up for me by the Derriere Luthier at Big Booty's Back Door Bass Emporium.

    When ever I walked into the music room, it would ask me, "Does my G string make me look fat?"

    Okay, I'm gonna shut up now.
    :(

    Does the bottom end feel as big as it looks?

    It looks like a well-rounded piece.

    Hope she's not just stringing you around.


    Ok, I am also done.

    Finally, a guitar owner who can credibly refer to his instrument as "she".
