I'm sure there's a small handful here, but... I've noticed lately that many of the bass players I encounter outside of talkbass couldn't give a rat's ass about bass guitars. I work with 3 such people at my day job (I work at a school so I know all the bass players), and there's a few guys I know that sub for me that are just completely disinterested in bass guitars. They're all talented working musicians also. They play one bass that they've had since their teens, and just kind of shrug and give a polite smile if I mention that I just bought a Rickenbacker, ask if they're interested in buying something I might be selling dirt cheap, or bring up anything about any kind of bass. They won't talk bass with me. They say dumb stuff like, I just play this P/J I've had since I'm a kid. They just don't freaking care! What the hell is wrong with these people? Anyone here want to fess up and admit to having this strange (yet not as rare as I'd like to think) disorder?
