That's it, I'm done. No more playing. 

Physically disintegrating,  more major spinal work a possibility. Left shoulder now packing up too.

Time to walk away. Even have to do that on sticks now.

When I can bear it, stuff will be appearing in the Marketplace...

Cheers, y'all, it's been great.

So sorry to hear this @Telebass. Always sad to hear of ageing / health woes, and especially among fellow BC members.

Just wondering whether it's worth considering a really small UKE bass, or some similarly tiny, lightweight option - perhaps for some acoustic jams? Or maybe even just noodling at home on the sofa?
I only suggest this as I know just how much I would miss playing music. Take care, look after yourself, and all the best.

Very sorry to hear this @Telebass

 

I sincerely hope your health picks up, or you can get to a place where it’s not all consuming. Don’t sell anything until you are 1000% sure there’s no way to continue playing. But, as suggested above, don’t rule out a bass uke or something similar to play around with if you feel up to it. 
 

Rooting for you man.

Hi Mr Telebass - your post made made me stop for several seconds and offer up an incantation of gratitude to whichever deity is keeping an eye on my health and well-being.  Having just turned 69 (and still gigging) it was also a timely reminder to think about the right way to lift and move my own gear.

 

I wish you well for the future sir.

 

Chris

Aww no. 
 

I hope your health improves/stabilises.

 

An Aria Sinsonido bass might allow you to keep your hand in?

 

they weigh about 2lbs, but are still full scale and have a wire frame body to sit and play x
