    I was in Chicago this weekend and happened to go to a blues club-- imagine that! Toward the end of the 2nd set, the band opened up for a jam session inviting audience member up to sit in. I got to go up and play this guy's bass-- he bought it in 1958 and toured with Muddy Waters for a few years. THe bass was in great shape and sounded wonderful. My only gripe--the neck was really wide and flat. Cool, eh?
  2. You're gripe is my pleasure... :D

    I miss my '58 - sold to buy an engagement ring... :bawl:

    However, I do own a v-neck '57 and a c-neck '59....the '59's are especially known for having a wide flat neck and I REALLY love them - I assume that's an all-maple neck/board on that '58 you played?
