Just a bit? About 8 necks too much for me.
hoping for bass with bong built in, save time between sets....
I agree with a lot of what you said here, but I sure hope that small specialized builders don't go away. They are part of the mom and pop economy still surviving in the USA. I'm kind of 50/50 on the increasing costs of US made instruments. I hope they stay relatively where they're at.
As for sustainable woods, bravo for that. I believe some of the major players have been toying with that for a while. But it seems the results are more for publicity than to make the complete switch to conscientious use of our limited world resources.
I didn't read the whole thread. The next big thing that I'll be buying when it comes out is a talent pedal. Everything else is just a rehash.
I'm hoping for a new wireless trend/unit/system that directly connects the instrument to the amp without interference. Maybe a new bandwidth or maybe commercial/industrial grade Bluetooth. Something with 25ft range. No need for extended range. Just something to alleviate cables.
We're trying our best!
Or buy an Ibanez semi-hollowbody. Available as fretted or fretless. And very affordable. I really love mine. Check out the video.
I think the amount of women buying guitars and basses now (more than men) will change the instruments that are offered - and the colours that are offered. And a lot more.

Or use a capo.
It’s the inevitable counter-reaction to decades now of mostly plant-based instruments
In ear monitoring.
Monetizing directly through social media portals instead of gigging out.
Ikr, basses are like penises, they don't look right, w/o a head!
I'm also all-in for built-in wireless connection.
Quarter-inch PHONE jacks? What is this, the 1920's?
I'm not sure the pedal exists, partly because of the resonance and decay of the upright's body. But I think a P-Bass, preferably fretless, with the original rubber mute under the bridge cover, with old flat wounds, plucked over the 17th frets comes pretty close.
I just hope Music Man does not go the way of fanned fretting!!!
I think it'll have more to do with digital / interface based processing... like Amplitube or Kemper style amp modeling.
On basses themselves, maybe more common use of hybrid pickup setups... like a Jazz with two split "Single / Humbucker" pickups.
virtual guitars and basses in the holodeck....too bad I won't be interested in them because the advent of holodeck technology will also mean the advent of holoporn.................
