1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Yummy!!

    Sigh. Sold my '64 Precision for $675, back in the early '80's. I more than doubled my original investment, and thought I was a financial genius...

    A friend of mine sold a white 1961 Les Paul (SG Style) in the early 80s for $400. Its worth about $7,000 today.

    I try not to think about the basses I sold years ago.

    I'd love to own one, but the logistics of it make it not happen.

    My biggest hurdle is that to me, EVERY bass is a player. If I've gotta just look at it because its too old or too fragile, it's not for me.

    I still shudder when I think of the lawsuit era Ibanez guitar that I traded for my first bass (a plywood junker).
