My job has recently requied me to travel from home 2 weeks out of every month! Therefore, I can't play my bass when I am on the road. I can't bring my bass and amp with me. This sucks. I am losing my skills. I used to play every day. I have a vox device that I can plug into my bass and use with headphones. Anyone know of a portable bass that is small enough to travel with that I will not have to check as baggage for an expensive fee?
