Ok so I will be getting a custom rig and custom bass done for me in the coming months. However i have been getting offers to audition for bands but the thing is I don't have a decent rig at the moment. I will have around $400 in december. I was origionally planning on saving that and putting it towards a new rig and/or bass in feb. or march. The rig will cost about $1500-$2300. The bass, anywhere from $1100-2000+ depending on what I get done. Now that is a lot of coin. So I can either A. Invest in a decent practice rig for around $400 give or take, then try to resell it later on and get some of my money back to put towards my full rig and bass. B. Wait like I planned before and just hold off on band auditions, practice more and spend a little less in the end vs losing money on a rig I don't plan on keeping. So what should I do? Music is important to me but without a decent rig i can't even practice with bands. On the other hand that $400 takes a good chunk out of the rig I will be keeping and getting done custom. So I am not entirely sure what path to take from here. Suggestions?
