Howdy! Alright, a little bit off topic, but it IS performance related I play in a corporate/wedding band, and usually wear a button up shirt with a suit waistcoat over the top - either paired with suit pants or jeans, depending on whether we need to look respectable or not.. The problem is that i noticed the buttons of the waistcoat are putting scratches in the back of my bass.. buckle rash for all us guys who wear their basses too high! Sooo... i had a chat to my mum about this (mothers are always good for such conversations) and she said that i should be able to buy soft rubber buttons that wouldn't scratch up my bass - which i thought was a fantastic idea! thanks mum! However, my girfriend was in Spotlight the other day (isn't it wonderful to have all these supportive people in your life!) and she had a look for some, but to no avail. Apparently the lady in the store hadn't even heard of them.. so i'm kinda back to square one - i know these buttons exist because my mum had some, but they were too small. The problem is i can't find them anywhere. I've also checked the net. Basically i'm asking for any help/suggestions/ideas on the matter... Cheers! Andy. ps. i've also considered putting some kind of a laminate/contact on the back of my bass.. but i'm not too sure about that idea..
