Thought this might be interesting. How long do you wait before you take a new bass to a gig? The day you get it? A month? I brought a Sadowsky M5-24 to the dress rehearsal for a musical I was playing the day I received it. Brought my new Roscoe 6 string to a jazz combo gig the day I received it as well - although I had played it at the Roscoe shop the week before. So, do you wait to "get to know" the new fish or do you just get wet?
