    Some fretless Yamaha Precision-bass clone whose model name I forget but was never able to find documentation about anyway

    I basically swapped out Yamaha for Fender after years of not getting the sound I wanted. In retrospect I probably should have tried some different pickups on the Yamahas first, but I wasn't that technically knowledgeable at the time.
    G.A.S. List:
    Feeling pretty well set with my current instruments. Would like to some day get some other basses for secondary (tertiary?) sounds.
