    I played for a few years but my brother (also a bassist) was always the band touring type. I locked myself in my room and learned theory and piano instead. Forgot how exhausting playing a bass is, but I love it!

    I have one too. I love mine! I was going to refinish it green but it looks too good as is.

    I picked up an acoustic b20 for... 59.99. Just something to practice on until I get competent enough to play around others haha

    I'm starting to think the Squier VM 70's Jazz is the most popular bass around. I went to an open jam a few weeks ago with mine - and another dude had the exact same one :eyebrow: Felt like I had showed up wearing the same shirt:D Great bass for the money. So $199 - it was used then?

    Yeah it was used. Perfect as far as I can see. Plays great after minor adjusting since I like my action rather low. I haven't seen anyone around here with it yet. Maybe it's an area thing? I have a friend with a Fender MIM that is in love with mine. Another convert already haha
     
  13. I have the five string version, great bass. I think the VM jazzes feel better the MIM jazzes.
