This is a picture of me my senior yeah (1986) with my first bass, sold to me by a mom and pop store that kind of took me in as a kid and let me earn it by working it off. I thought at the time that it was a 1968 Gibson EB-0 from what the Gibson rep at the store told me at the time but I don't know because I haven't been able to find ny other bass exactly like it. The clover leaf style tuner were original, and it was a short scale.
This a a picture of a picture so I am sorry. The white blob is from my flash but the "star" is an effect by the photographer. I am waxing nostalgic for some of my old basses, but the Fender Performers and Gibson Victory Artist price are just going to unreasonable heights. I may give good money for my very first bass though!
