just took my fender out of the closet.
sure. i like high end basses as much as the next guy. people i've gigged with for many years have never seen me play a 4 string bass.
but, as we've seen and heard and discussed in probably more than half of the threads in this forum; theres something very lovely about the simplicity that a nice fender bass has to it.
this particular bass- an '89-90 USA fender p/j. black/white. it was my first bass. i learned on a borrowed ibanez starter bass, saved every penny i could for a long time, and eventually brought this baby home.
it's been in my closet (literally) for probably 2 years now. has not been played for more than 5 minutes for probably 6+ years. it's got a few minor issues, a strange output jack thats too large for the cavity.. needs to be adjusted here and there.. ext. but my god, it feels good to play a simple, 4 string, nice, fender bass.
so if anyone else has an old fender bass sitting in the closet not being touched, here i am, a passionate lover of high end boutique electric extended range basses, encouraging you to take it out for the day and go nuts.
ahh... motown never sounded so good.
that will be all.
