    I was looking at my fingers and noticed the gorwing calluses on them that are making them hard and smooth. I was wondering, do you, more experienced players, still have fingerprints ?? or have they been erased or horribly disfigured ???

    Well, all of the world's greatest assassins were bass players.

    My fingers sorta have missing links in my fingerprints where callus' are at. Bad thing, fingerprints seem to grow back when they turn to dead skin and fall off. And another bad thing, friggin CSI investigators can match fingerprints with missing parts with todays technology....Kinda cool lookin to only have half a fingerprint though.

    Ya wanna ditch the prints? Get some 40 grit sandpaper and switching from hand to hand occaisionally sand a wooden surface for about 15 minutes.

    I do not however, advocate any unlawful activity that may result in your arrest, possible prosecution and jail time.
