That would be cool if you had a big enough stage. If not, you'll just have to go straight over the guitarist's pedals - give him some "overdrive" he'll never forget :)
'04 Genuine bass of novel headstock and body design that I shall not deign to mention by name
'04 Squier P-bass Special (Indonesian, gun metal grey metallic)
'09 Gibson Thunderbird
'80 Aria Pro II SB-1000 (mk1 batwing) - being restored
Fender Rumble 500 (V3) combo

Doing some tricks off of his whammy?

Yeah, unfortunately stage size stops these kinds of shenanigans at the moment :(

Our singer uses a Roland Ax-Synth. Someone in the audience a couple of weeks back referred to it as her 'lady organ' :lol:
Basses - enough...probably
Amps - just enough
Cabs - def enough for my back
Pedals - 4...but one has 13 notes
Other stuff - more than enough

These are custom made by Elaine Walker http://verticalkeybo....com/index.html
Controller keyboards stripped down to the playing surface, in order to allow the left hand to play from the opposite side like a guitar.
Also allows other playing positions including conventionally on a stand.

I love the idea of keytars but usually they seem awkwardly designed and often 'one handed'.

Here's a video of Elaine performing one of her songs using a microtonal (Bohlen-Pierce scale) version.
