    So have you found it? As in THE GEAR that gives you your sound? Here is mine. When I die, I want these to be buried with me. ;)

    That. I WILL be buried with it.
  3. Nothing. I don't even want to be buried. When I die I hope to be incinerated and will have given away all of my gear and donated some of my organs.

    I went down to the St. James Infirmary,
    found my baby there.
    She was stretched out on a long white table,
    so calm, so cool, so bear.
    Let her go, I said, let her go,
    may God bless her.
    Wherever she may be.
    Well, she can search this whole wide world over,
    but she'll never find a sweet man like me.

    Now when I die, I want to be buried,
    in a box, with a black coat, and a Stetson hat.
    I want a twenty dollar gold piece,
    on my watch chain.
    So all the boys will know I died, standing pat.

    I don't want a lot of junk with me in my grave. From what I hear people do a lot of spinning down there, so I will need the space.

    Also, I would be careful about being buried with a $3500 bass... your grave could be opened and the bass would be taken from your cold fragile hands
  9. does a shovel count as gear? you know, just in case they don't check for a pulse or something...
  10. a Steinberger XL- it would make a workable shovel to dig your way out with if you were still alive, and would stand up okay to the heat if you ended up in hell.

    Check the post under yours... It looks like a perfect marriage of tonality and functionality.

    I don't want to be buried with anything. I want others to get enjoyment form my instruments and discover the greatness that is Bass :D

    I plan on being cremated. I will leave my equipment to underprivileged players. Unless I die poor. If I die poor, it will be auctioned off to help my family.
