    Ummm, you sound like a guitar player!

    And for the record, that is NOT a bad thing. I myself an a guitar player doubling on bass... it just so happens that I spend most of my time doubling these days.

    Are you running through a tube amp?

    At the moment, no, but you raise an excellent point. I should probably get 18" speakers and a piezo tweeter just to be sure I have it all covered.

    Hah, no, but I love the relaxed feel of a shorty. And from my perspective raising the action is a reasonable tradeoff for a more elastic string feel.
