    Hey folks,

    An EUB has been on the wishlist for a while, and I dropped a little cash for a Dean Pace bass. It's no Ergo, but given my smaller hands and already-present stress injury from playing BG, I felt a shorter scale would minimize my pain and maximize my learning. I was right - playing it, I am feeling none of the tendon inflammation I associate with playing BG. It must be the upright neck angle.

    Picking up the BG (my nice P-bass with the sexy skinny neck) for a moment affirmed this - felt funny after less than 5 minutes.
