I'm a newbie to the DB world, been playin' BG for almost 40 years. Currently working with a nine piece group with horn section doing weddings, banquets etc. . I would like to add a DB to the mix, would be perfect for the big band, jazz and rockabilly material. I can dial in a useable sound on my slab with a piezo bridge, but a DB would add greatly to the tone and overall presentation of the group. However space is at a premium, both stage and cargo. I am considering a BSX 2000, available locally, but this thin body DB with a David Gage pup is attractive . . . http://www.giardinelli.com/srs7/g=stringed/search/detail/base_pid/470330/ Does anyone have experience with this bass? I am concerned about feedback due to the fact that stage posistioning always places me directly in front of my amp. But that big blonde baby would look nice up there !
