I'm new to the forum and am trying to locate a particular brand of bass. I already own a Danelectro long horn bass but would like to have another one as a backup. I have a problem with my shoulder and lower rib cage that causes me pain there if I strap on a bass that weighs too much. My Danelectro bass is just light enough that I can handle it, and no other bass I've tried with few exceptions can match how light it is. With most gigs being anywhere from 4 to 5 hours a night, I have to have something I can handle and the Danelectro fits the bill. I know that they've discontinued making guitars, except for pedals and accessories, but if anyone knows someone who has one they'd like to part with, I'd appreciate a reply. Thanks. Musichead.
