    After having been on the UK Bass site, Basschat, I thought I'd see how you did things in the USA :)
    I've been playing bass for only a few years (after 39 years playing guitar and not getting any better I realised I was playing the wrong stringed instrument, so went straight over to a 1964 Gibson EBO and have never looked back).
    I now only play GUS G3 basses (handmade in the UK). I did have one that I imported back to the UK from America but stupidly sold it on. I now play a GUS G3 Retro Active and am about to get a fretless version.
    Looking forward to seeing how UK and USA bass players differ (I wouldn't have though an awful lot :)
