I bought my first long-scale bass in a long time. I was worried I wouldn't be able to play it due to my Arthritis but turns out I didn't need to worry. By working my way up through the short scale basses, I have built up enough hand strength to make a good showing.
The Ibanez Premium SR2400 in Amethyst Purple (https://amzn.to/2SpDiCU) is absolutely beautiful and is a whole lot better guitar than I expected for the money. More coming soon.
