first post here, although I’m always reading threads. I tour a lot, probably around 70% of the year. We play for lack of a better term indie rock and up until now all I’ve ever needed has been a p bass. New songs are calling for some kind of hollow body, and there are lots of options I’m not too familiar with. I love the thumpy sound and intend to put flats on it. In the studio I played one of the 60s Gibson ones and loved it. Ashamed I don’t remember the model number but it was too expensive and I don’t know if I want to bring a vintage guitar on tour with me. Currently looking at the hofner vt 500/7 ss and guild starfire II. Also the hagstrom Viking and italia mondial have caught my eye but those I don’t know nearly as much about. I want it to be able to hold up on the road though. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
