I’ve been without a bass guitar for approximately four days now, and while I managed to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, it still wasn’t pleasant. I found myself contemplating whether my new string orders had come in and if I should try a new preamp with my Jazz bass. I pondered slapping a graphite neck on my Stingray, and how it would affect the sound. I contemplated what I should take to a practice on Sunday – the P-bass, obviously, but would I need anything else? My eyes drifted towards guitar stores, music stores, even pawn shops. I could distract myself with the iPod and “Spook Country,” but it was a temporary solution. After pulling in to home, making sure everything was intact, and taking everything in, the bass was in my hands and I was trying to pick out some of the lines I’d heard on the trip back.I may just have to get a Steinberger for the road.
