Hey all, I've noticed since I started playing bass again last year that there is a lot of hype around fanned fret and headless basses...sometimes even both at the same time! A lot of manufacturers seem to be throwing their hats in the ring for what seems to me like the current trend. Certainly neither of these are new designs, but in certain circles of music they seem pretty ubiquitous at the moment and are pretty hard to ignore. The point of this post isnt to criticize, or speak poorly about anyone who makes or owns a bass in this category, but instead to discuss what the "next big thing" might be. What is the next hype going to be around in bass design in say 5 or 10 years? Any predictions?
