I still have a bass amp rig and a decent Tokai P-bass copy. My bass could stand to be upgraded, but my drummer buddy has an early-70's sunburst P-bass that's the lightest, most resonant P I've ever played. Absolute joy to play it. Maybe I should make him an offer he can't refuse. It's a pity we don't live closer; I'd like to work up some complicated music and I don't give a rat's tail about commercial potential. I'll never be an exceptional guitarist, but with some serious woodshedding I might be a dangerous bassist.
