An odd question...

anyone know if its hard to play the bass (on stage, so maybe heavier than normal) while its wet? before our set i was thinking of dousing my upper body in fake blood (or red food coloring and water). at a gwar concert a couple months ago my friend said i looked nuts while covered in "gwar juice" and i thought it would be a good effect. plus its more fun to headbang with wet hair...

you will ruin your guitar. completely. your hands will probably slip all over the place too.

"To think that natural selection or even the penguins themselves could come up with the idea to migrate miles and miles multiple times each year without their partner or their offspring is a bit insulting to my intellect. How great is our God!"

Water and wood don't like each other.

Now if you have a graphite, fiberglass compound made bass guitar I don't see why not. Water will not hurt that.

That'll be a mighty slippery fretboard. Gwar juice is okay if you're a !!!VOKILLIZ-I-!!! though.

Keep in mind, your base is most likely not waterproof.
seems like you got a case of stupidphobia

Exclamation Bad Idea!

Well....go ahead and give it a try if you want to fuck up your bass....You'll ruin the strings, pickups, the fake blood shit might soak into the neck and warp it and fuck knows what else will happen Don't ruin instruments anyone who desecrates a perfectly good instrument of any kind should be killed .....except maybe accordions, I fucking hate the sound of accordions

Another consideration is what will that fake blood shit do to the internal electronics and volume/selector pots? I'd imagine it'd completely destroy them...however, if you're incredibly rich, then go nuts, cuz you can replace it on a daily basis. lol
