I've only owned headless basses for years. (MANY years.) I had some time to kill tonight so I went to the music store to play around for a little while. I picked up 3 Fender basses and was STUNNED by how much they weighed. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I can't imagine wearing one of them for a few hours at a clip. Or maybe I've just found an excuse to buy a new bass. It'll be like a portable gym.
