Did you ever have a bass with an "edge", or a "fin" on it, or an odd shape on the bottom, so you couldn't lean it up against a cab, like during the break at a gig or something? Is that annoying or what? I hate having to carry that dumb guitar stand. First of all, those things are mostly cheap, the parts always come off, and they always fall apart. Second, most of my stands are "detachable", meaning if you want to load them in the car with a bunch of gear, you have to take the bottom off, collapse the legs, and so on. What that means in practice (for me anyway) is that the bottom part tends to get lost, in the rush to load the gear, before or after a gig. I keep looking for basses with a nice smooth symmetrical bottom, so I can lean 'em up against the rig during breaks. Anyone else had this experience?
