I was at a show when a friend of the drummer asked to play a song with my band. He was a bass player so I sort of felt obliged to let him use my bass as she knew him. As soon as he got up to play I wish I hadn't though, as he was really drunk and falling all over the place and I was scared he'd bash my bass on the guitarist or something. When I got the bass back the strings felt different...he must have been quite hard on them and bending them because they didn't feel right. That was when I used my Ibanez...now I have my Warwick Thumb I have told the rest of the band that under no circumstances is anyone ever going to play my bass. I don't want to mean or rude, but that bass is my pride and joy and cost a lot of money, and I just don't trust anyone enough to be as careful with it as me. What do you guys think?
