Guys, I've never experienced any GAS for that much of guitar stuff, than I'm GASsing for a bass guitar, right now. Donno what it is?! Maybe it comes with age... Anyway, because I've been collecting guitars all my life, now I've come to conclusion that I need a bass guitar and maybe change a direction a bit. This is the problem... there are too many "lead" guitar "players" in my town and no one wants to take a role in a rhythm playing. Bass players are no where to be seen... Since my band fell apart last year I've decided that maybe I should take a bass guitar and start playing somewhere where the other 90 % of them are guitarists. I don't have a problem with that. I'm just sad there aren't many bands and there isn't much love for music right now. Now I've been on the urge to get a decent bass for all gigs. Nothing special, considering I have a expensive guitar taste. Just something to get me running. I'm looking for a P-bass or Jazz or in between like PJ. Nothing eye stabbing! I'm an old fashion guy. But these Sire Marcus Miller basses look they do much for the money. Sooo, what's your opinions about this that can help me decide what bass should get. P.S. Since there is a talkbass forum, and there are a lot of well established bass players that know it all, I need a opinion from a guitarist that, maybe, has been in a similar position as I am no. Thanks!
