Certainly the supply and demand favors us Bass players here. I have heard 4 or 5 to 1. Based on how many more guitars than basses at GC and Sam Ash I would say about 4 to 1. Also Bandmix has a lot more guitar players than Bass players. When I was a teenager (30 years ago) I played guitar and so did everyone else and their brother. There was only 1 bass player in the entire town of 17K and he was in strong demand and always got invited to jam sessions. This is one of reasons I switched over to bass. I would also welcome thoughts on ratios of drummers to bass players, singers and keys.
