    Started with a Lyle bass when I was 13 or so, *think* the first song I learned to play along with was Deep Purples "Smoke on the Water", but it might have been anyone of a number of Hendrix, Cream, or CCR's songs. Have ended up regretting selling almost every fender bass I ever owned over the years, except the really heavy ones, as well as my mid 1970's autumn glo rick, and a teal pedulla rapture 4, that was very light. Got into chasing down vintage fender basses in the early 1990s, prior to discovering their vintage tone and light weight, I had been a fan of the heavy ash bodied early to mid 1970s p's & j's in american walnut, natural or blonde. I am also in the minority in that I prefer the 1.625 B neck nut width over the 1.500 A and 1.750 C necks. (not that there's anything wrong with that) The amp combo that stuck with me the longest was the acoustic 371 (370 amp 301 cab) from 1976? until 1986 or so. Talk about "this one goes to 11!", rarely needed to turn it up over 5 or so.
