...and I think Fatz has dabbled too.
(I'll post pics later if there is interest in the topic)
I have 2 basses now. One is a guitar bass by Guild, semi-vintage, late seventies, B-50 with a piezo pickup built in...but mostly it's for sitting on the porch playing acoustic music like bluegrass with acoustic players. I'm comfortable playing the stand-up bass but have never owned one. At bluegrass parties, some other schmuck will have toted one in but drank too much corn likker and handed it over to me. This bass replaced an Epiphone El Capitan that developed a heel joint issue.
My other bass is a Mexican Fender, a Jazz bass hot-rodded with a Precision pickup in the neck position. It replaced a lovely Ibanez SGR 2000 which started having electrical problems.
I'm probably gonna cough up a yard and a half this spring for a new electric. I have 2 candidates.
Can also talk about amps till hell freezes over.
What ya got, sports?
