I think 14 days would be just about long enough to work out what the holy hell all those knobs and switches do...plus, I'd be sitting/lying down, so the mahooosive weight wouldn't be so much of an issue...

Aren't they rather short scale..? The tuners are at the back, I suppose. :lol:

If you had to pick one bass to play during self isolation , which one would you choose and why.

 

 

The same one I play 90+ percent of the time anyway. 😎

Epiphone Jack Casady. Don't even need an amp if you're in a quiet place and CBA plugging it in

I can't choose. I'm going to use this period of isolation to play them all! Whichever ones get least use will hit the marketplace when the plague has passed.

The one(s) you already have. Not much chance to get to the shops to buy another...

Dingwall Super PJ5. Although, I bought a new (used) Super P4 a week ago, before my tour got cancelled. That purchase has not aged well :crazy:

I took the time to put round wounds on my 54 reish P instead of flats and I've been noodling about with it in the conservatory through my new vox practise amp - bought for no other reason than it fits on the windowsill. 

The pound shop rotty sits on the table in front of me fascinated until I lapse into playing hotel California , at which point it scratches it's starfish and sods off.

If my boss closes the shop I will be playing my usual Warwick Corvette. I haven't played much since breaking my right hand last November so I will be taking it easy. I've also bought a router to fit EMG Thunderbird pickups so I might do that first.

Anything at all! This isolation means that my kids make even more mess and need even more entertaining and looking after. My work has gone in to overdrive, mostly running around going "what do we do about this?!?!?!" so my free time to play bass has been even more limited than usual.

My basses are all now practising social isolation, and are kept on wall hangers at least two metres apart.

But the real plague carriers are the valve amps ... dodgy characters with a dubious past, and they smell funny too.

 

Like guitarists ....

I’m allowed to WFH but I really miss my three large screens, a laptop doesn’t cut it

My fretless bass.  I'd have no excuse not to try and improve my technique and listening skills.

Oo, my Jazz has the same plate on it. Who's up for a wee jam? All together now - a one, a two, a three, a four..

Ooh, the virus isn't fun, isn't fun
When you gonna make me real ill, Corona?
Ooh, you make my bottom run, bottom run
Gonna come in for the kill, Corona

My Sei 6 Flamboyant with Roland pickup and GR-55. A year of confinement might be enough time to go through all the sounds.
