Guitar Nine
General , G9 Attic

bat·ter·y /ˈbadərē/ a grouping of artillery pieces for tactical purposes.

A look at the Guitar Nine organization's grouping of 4- and 5-string basses for low-end purposes from 1980 through 2022. It's been called the "Noble 9", but that's a somewhat jovial (or highfalutin) way of saying there's an appropriate bass for every four-string jazzer, five-string bassist and even the Geddy Lee wanna-be.
