I had always thought of drums and guitar as being roughly equal, as you can drop about $2000-3000 on a decent guitar and about $1500 on an amp--and about the same on a shell pack and then cymbals, a throne, a bodyguard to keep the groupies away, etc...
Keep the groupies away, are you kidding??...Or maybe you're talking about guy groupies?
This I don't get.
I also play Bass.
