    In this day and age of digital photography.. I think it’s time for the builders to have an option to include an onboard digital cameras on our basses. Not on all but maybe as an extra??
    Maybe a lens in the headstock area with the shutter release near the pickups and electronics within control cavity.. you wouldn’t need too much space.
    Awesome bandmate and crowd shots.

    Yay or Nay ?

    Go !!!!!

    I've seen some videos with a GoPro attached to the headstock and they usually cause me motion sickness.

    Um, no. If you want a camera, mount it yourself.

    There would be NO continuity to customer demand. Some would want it facing forward. Some would want it facing down the fretboard. Some would want it Apple compatible. Some would want it Android/Windows. Some would want the ring around it to be Sherwood green with nitro finish.

    It would be a marketing NIGHTMARE to try to juggle demand for various options.

    Clip a Gopro on yours and be done with it.

  12. I want a camera in my bass that will read my charts and tell me when I'm about to play a wrong note.

    How about a flashing metronome?

    And a small digital clock.

  14. Maybe a backup camera would be nice, if only to stave off the possibility of me keeling over into my amp and looking more stupid than usual. It can't have that annoying beeping though. It's bad enough sharing the stage with a drummer. Having two annoying metronomes would be torture, especially since the camera would prove how bad the drummer is at keeping time.
