Ok for those of you in a band how many do you have and use?
Like your main one? your back up at gigs. another one for alternate tuning. a practice one?

How should I do it?

Should I have one bass for practice w ith a band, one for gigs and use that practice as a back up? That way i'd just need two?

-Crown XTI 1000 Amp
-Two PR15 mains
-Shure SM58
-Dbx compressor/gate
2 of each (like 2 guitars and 2 basses), mostly because they sound different, so it gives my tone a wider range, but I guess I never thought of my older guitars as backups until now.

when I gig, I take 2 guitars. 1 to use and 1 for backup. Both of my guitars are equally good, so I practice with whichever one is closest.

i have 1 main guitar and one backup in case a string breaks or something.
