So I've been getting to know this local bass player who has been around and had many awesome gigs back in the day. Ronnie Hawkins is the only one I can remember off the top of my head... Anyways, he invited me over to his place for a hang. Got there, and before I knock, I hear some heavy bass pumping out the house. Anyways, get in, and in the studio room is his Ampeg B-18 and there's a nice lookin P bass on a stand. He gives it to me to play, and it feels pretty damn nice. I play it for a couple minutes, enjoying some amazing tone, and a gigantic baseball bat neck. and i'm about to hand it back, when I ask him what kind of P it was. He told me "a 57". Now thanks to TB, i immediately assume the reissues fender did So I say "wow, pretty nice for a reissue". He just kinda looks at me funny, laughs, and is like "no man, that's a *57*!". That's when I realized I wasn't holding the bass with both hands! :0 It was quite an experience, and I'm sorry the picture is so crappy (and only one photo!), but I know that without proof, it didn't happen! . Oh, and there was this rather strange lookin other bass just sitting around. No big deal though, or anything.......!!!!!!!!!!
