    i'm ordering a fretless neck from warmoth to go on my old MIM jbass with upgraded pups cause its collecting dust and i wanted to give it purpose. Is there a pedal/eq that i can plug both basses into and then into my pedalboard and switch between them? oh wait, that's a line selector. Ok so i have two choices on musiciansfriend... and once again Boss solves my problem is this what i need? any other suggestions? am i making this too complicated?

    i saw that! it's a little pricey for me right now, and i thought the boss had a little more to offer for the money (i'm a sucker for versatility). plus i'm not really looking for too much in the way of eq, like its a little overkill. thoughtS?

    I would like to get a Bassbone someday, when I have the money.

    For now, I am using a Morley A/B/Y switch that I got at a garage sale for $5.

    If you can't afford the Bassbone for now, you might check out an A/B or A/B/Y box from Loooper. True bypass, and superb construction. My old Morley is huge, and I am thinking of getting a mini A/B/Y from Loooper, to save some space.

    Dave Boggs is a good guy, and he builds the box to your order. You pick finish type, color, LED colors, and he can do any options that you want. I already have a custom 2 loooper that I bought from him several months ago, with an extra input on one of the effects loops and a blend knob, so that I can blend wet/dry signal when I use distortion.

    which one would i use to toggle the 2 basses?
     
  6. He can do you one which is two inputs into one output, which is what you will probably be needing.

    That's how I had mine built, so I could switch between fretless and fretted in the same song without unplugging anything. I also had volume pots added to each input so I could keep the volume on my fretted down a little so it'd be equal to the passive volume of the fretless.

    Mine has lots of extras and such, but you can get an A/B box with two inputs for around $40.

    For a limited budget I will recommend the boss ls-2.
    It's always useful to have on a pedal board.
