Hey, I'm a longtime bass player and member of Talkbass, and I have a favor to ask some of you guys. Would any local SF bay area bass players be willing to go through a user research interview with me? I'd basically ask you to play your bass (or guitar) for me and ask you a couple questions. I would ideally conduct the interview at your rehearsal space. The whole interview would take about 30-40 minutes. The reason why I'm doing this is that I'm an industrial designer. I'm trying to figure out ways to improve on the instrument. I feel that it's pretty much stagnated since the 1950s. I know that a lot of this has to do with customers preferring classic designs (I can hear you all screaming "THE P BASS IS FINE AS IT IS" through your computer screens), but I'm more concerned with just coming up with a great product than actual commercial success. In return for your time and insights, I can get you a six pack of your favorite beer or just throw you a couple bucks. Thanks!
