You're impressed with 6-string basses?  Clearly, you haven't heard the Chapman Stick, invented by Mister Chapman.  It can have 10 strings or more, and is played by tapping.  Tony Levin demonstrates and explains it here:

Nice, but it’s a pity that the sound of her Stick is so low as to be almost inaudible.  Subtitles would be a great help, too.  Is she singing in Tagalog?

Yes, as reviews call it Filipino. There are over 15 different dialects, so close to Tagalog. It is considered the most widely used dialect.

 

This remaster seems to have the stick's audio up a little better. Since the notes are all hammer ons, they don't have a lot of bite.

My favorite 'stick' performance it this one. Bass strings are in the middle. I think going to the top is tuned in fifths and to the bottom in fourths. I have enough trouble wrapoing my head around other standard guitar tunings. Sorry, it's not a babe. You'll just have to listen to the music.

I feel pretty dumb...I've listened to a lot of Tony Leven, butnever realized he was in King Crimson. I had never paid attention to them.You know... so much music, so little time.

OK; 5 string bass guitar :)  Did not even know about these :) Googled and found out there are 5 and 6 string bass guitars. :) 

 

Uhm.......

 

They don't stop at 6 strings, either. How about 18 strings?

Kathy Valentine - from The Go-Go's. This girl knows how to GROOVE.

 

Tal Wilkenfeld and Esperanza Spalding are at the top of my list. Actually, I think Esperanza is a lot more technical (?) or more versatile/well-rounded. But they typically play in different genre so not really comparable IMO (as a fellow bass player).
