40 plus years later, you're the bass player, what would you do differently? 1). What bass would you use? 2). What amp are you going to play through? 3). Which speaker configuration would you select? 4). Who's strings are going to grace your bass? 5). Pick or no pick. 6). What other changes would you consider? I'll go first! 1). 1964 Gibson Thunderbird IV; Inverness Green (two pick-up model); wired in stereo. 2). Ampeg SVT (for the bridge pickup). Acoustic 370 (for neck pickup). 3). Ampeg 8-10 bottom for bridge pickup and the big old 18" Acoustic folded horn for neck pickup. 4). Rotosound 66, rounds. 5). No pick, fingers all the way. 6). My hat of choice would be a Fedora.
