A tip I learned quite some time ago and do to all my guitars and basses. If they have a polyurethane (clear coat) on the back of the neck. Take some fine (200-400grit) sand cloth and remove it. It'll keep your thumb from "sticking" although you'll need to rub some tung or linseed oil on it every so often.
Yeah, been awhile since I really played much. Sold all my guitar gear (racing gets expensive), except my Fender acoustic and my bass gear has been on loan to a buddy for a few years. I should either get my bass setup back or sell it to him.
Nothing too special, Ibanez SR605 5 string fretless, GK 400RB III head, SWR 1x15 and Hartke 2x10 cabs. Since I'm kinda getting out of racing (more things I have to do at the PCA events) and only 4 a year, I'm starting to miss my instruments. I've got room in the basement to setup a jam room with some sound-proofing for the neighbors and wife.
EDIT: Holy schnikes. Just looked at Guitar Center for something like my old setup. I'm not paying $2400 for a Marshall JCM800 head, although back in the day I think I paid around 1500 for a "slightly" used one. I'll probably get a MA100H, still all tube. I do however remember paying close to a grand for my prized Jackson with some custom work done. Like switch the pickups to some Seymour Duncan Distortion+ and adding a kill switch. And the current one would be about the same price.
