    Ok, last gig I used my Warwick Corvette Standard. It was great. Love the weight, sounded great the whole night. Have it packed up right now to take tonight but...
    Was just messing around on my MIM Geddy Lee and loving how good it sounds and plays and now I'm waffling...
    Downside is the GL is heavier. And it is like brand-spanking new condition, whereas my Warwick already has a couple of battle scars. So, tell me which one sbould I use? I will go with the majority.

    Go with what you know. Bring the Wick tonight and if you want to bring Geddy try him out in rehearsal first.

    Grab the Geddy. All the cool kids are doing it.
     
  4. A poll would have been a better way to showcase your two basses.
    Photos are optional, but encouraged.

    Is it somehow impossible to take both?

    Blow their minds. Always keep them guessing.

    I made a vow to myself to only take two basses to any gig. I have to take my 5 string Warwick, as I need it for several songs. So I'm only taking one...

  13. Geddy Lee is the answer to all questions.
    Or maybe it's just me that don't like Warwicks.

    You should take whatever feels natural to you, but is always a good idea to bring new air and try something different

    The problem with corvettes has always been seeing over the fenders. Go Ged!
