I was recently looking thru the new Bass Player and it had an article about the bass player for Al Green ( Leroy Hodges) . When it got to his instruments it listed a 70's Jazz, (Cool) and a five string Squire Precision. Now nothing is wrong with Squire Precisions, but I have TWO Sadowsky's and I don't anticipate any calls from Al to fill in on his next tour or lay down tracks for his new Album. I've actually been considering selling one of my Sadowsky's (metro), It's a great bass, but do I really need two? I can't remember the last time I had a failure (with a bass) on a gig or a broken string. I am considering picking up a cheap practice bass, because I'm on the road in sales and would like to practice in the hotel room. Do I need three basses? I'm just wondering how players here feel about their equipment verse their ability. It's cool to collect gear, and I'm not trying to give anyone a guilt trip, but do you have more gear then you need? (for your ability). Is your gear just right? Or do you have gear that a REAL BASS PLAYER would die for?
