Been playing a Fender Precision for a few years and love it, but was interested in getting a hollow body guitar. After a couple of not-great online purchases and interactions I decided I'll only ever buy a guitar in person again. I saw a store that had a Framus star bass (everybody knows Bill Wyman played one of these, but just as important to me, was used by Jerry Handley). Went to check it out, and ended up getting this Hagstrom Concord bass instead. I had never heard of this company before but seemed to like it over the Framus. The store had no case, but a guy shopping there happened to be selling a Washburn case on craigslist and it worked out for this bass perfectly. One of the photos is a little lever I screwed into the case to prevent it from closing on my hands, which had to be fixed right away. Generally speaking, it's a pretty cool sounding bass and paired with my Fender Precision gives me a lot of options. I play them both about the same amount, practicing or gigging. The only thing really with this bass is it can feedback at higher volumes, but for me I usually play in bars and it isn't really an issue. I used it on a short tour and it worked out fine. I haven't been forced into the scenario of covering the F-holes yet. Hope you dig.
