    Pretty sure that THIS won't be a future trend: fretless multiscale basses!
    Instead I'm still hoping for built-in cigarette lighters, bottle-openers, tuners and other helpful stuff ...
  2. Nice try on the font.

    Uke basses with the big, rubbery strings are hyper-addictive and sound KILLER!

  6. Still, a nice shot at it. I would have used this one. BTW, if you like this sort of exercise, check out Affinity Photo. It is way cheaper than Photoshop and pretty much does everything. Sorry, recently retired pre-press printer dude, I can't help it.

    I believe, new instruments will start coming out from African Chinese colonies.

    Well, they don't have a bass, but Relish Guitars has a magnetic back and a system that allows for swapping components on the fly. It's not an industry standard such as what exists in the PC world, but it's a start.

    Push button necks that don't use strings (think guitar hero instruments). A processor on board said "instruments" that emulates any guitar sound. Bonus, it never needs a setup.

    Honestly what I would really like to see is amps with interchangeable specific voices, I have no need or desire for the trend of the emulator amps that will do multiple amp voices. Just a basic power amp voiced like a B15 or a Sunn 200s with the proper speaker emulator that can either be sent to an on stage speaker or FOH.

    The next big trend... Absurdity!

    At least they built it with a P and a Jazz on the same end.
    Video of it being played is posted below the pic.

    I think we’ll see a trend towards sustainable woods for bodies and necks, treated woods for fingerboards and a decline in custom built, high end basses. Amps will get smaller, lighter and louder making them more portable. All current style instruments made in USA and Europe will become more expensive as time goes on.
