C’mon, we all have that ONE bass, that we just cannot bare to part with! Sadly, we know that one day, that bass is not going to be the same bass you originally fell in love with. Stuff happens! Parts may need replacing, or just slowly wear out over time... However, with good care, your guitar or bass could last for years and years! There are many original vintage fender instruments out there, all original electronics and necks, that still sound and perform amazing! Some may argue that stuff isn’t built to the same standard as they once were, but that doesn’t mean that your beloved bass couldn’t last for a few good decades, as long as it is well taken care of. So, my question to the TalkBass community is... What are some cool tips/tricks/hacks that YOU use to ensure your beloved bass stays the best for the longest? This could include regular maintenance, or ways of storing your bass away. Anything really, that you do to take care of your bass and keep it running strong. It doesn’t matter how “out there”, or obsessive it may appear, feel free to share!
