(Maybe this belongs in band management or even gig stories and humor, if so please feel free to move it.) The guys in my band don't look completely happy when I bring the fancy maple and carbon fibre Modulus, even though they have to admit it's the best sounding one ... not that I let it stop me, but they do prefer my more traditional sunburst and tortoise jazz bass ... though it's not quite right either as it's a five string bass, it has a battery and it's not a Fender ... so every now and then a small barb is cast my way about how I really should buy a four string Precision, preferably an old one. And an Ampeg stack of course. So, are you playing blues and rock on "too fancy" equipment? PS: My guys are a bit hypocritical, I'm not saying anything about them playing Yamaha, Godin, Parker ... not your traditional Fenders.
