If a fellows bassist's bass was broken, and it was during a show, would you lend him/her yours? It happened to me today. I wasn't exactly caught in the situation of lending out my bass, but infact, my bass was not sounding. I was at a competion (Kiwanis at Humber College Lakeshore Campus, if anyone is interested), and my bass wasn't sounding. It had worked fine with an electronic tuner, but when I plugged in, my bass wouldn't sound. A crew man came up and tried to figure out the problem, and we finally were able to recognize that it was my bass. "Do you want to borrow my bass?" I obviously said yes, and I was given a chance to play a fretless Yamaha TRB6II. We go back to the question. If a fellow bassist's bass was broken, would you lend him/her yours?
