    I found it's hard to get a good tone if you're not playing your bass! :p

    considering over half of it is in your fingers, you'll never find your tone.

    I'm always tweaking my gear, and frankly, I too haven't been playing much lately. Well, it's finals week, then I'm planning on jammin' with the guys.

    Hopefully more new gear too. The only problem with GAS, is it sometimes distracts people from the playing, however, when/if I'm in a psychological rut as far as my playing goes, a new piece of gear usually causes a new creative spark.
