Somewhere between 2 and 3....I voted 3.

 

What is the benefit of having it super high? I notice a lot of jazz players seem to do that. I can't imagine that being more comfortable for anyone, with your arms/wrists/elbows all at awkward angles....so what's the advantage? Does playing somehow get easier or something?

Bit lower than average- almost Flea level.

But this is because I have long monkey arms :D and I can't keep a straight elbow-wrist with the bass any higher.

In my pre-Stenie days I had the bass quite high but that might be cos I had no technique whatsoever (as opposed to now when, erm... :freak:)
