    It would break my heart to think too hard about it. I started playing in the mid sixties. My first Fenders were from the fifties. Gone baby, gone.

    Fender Jazz Bass Club #968

    Played guitar in bands from 14 yrs old to about 21. My band split up and the singer and drummer joined an existing, much better band. They lost their bass player, and my buddies asked if I wanted to give it a try. Found my niche! I've put it down and picked it up in the 45ish years since. Back into it, working on my skills and my reading, trying to build the nerve to audition again.


    I am actually subsidized by several manufacturers to NOT endorse their products. :bassist:
