so in about a month I'll go abroad for master studies which means I'll be gone from home for a long time and who knows,I may never even come back. so I'm wondering what's the best method to store my basses. I have a passive 4 string bass that's been sitting in tune in its gig bag and an active 5 string bass that's out in the open and I'm using as my main bass,also in tune. would it be best to slightly detune the basses for neck relief? would it be best to take out the battery from the active so as to avoid any accidents? would it be best to take off the strings completely? (I think that would be quite bad actually but it doesn't hurt to ask) what else should I watch out if I want to store my basses and not play them for more than a year? thanks.
