    Finally...never ordering online again (been a week! ;) )



    Setup/action looks good. Going to tune and start with the basic plucking technique. :hyper::hyper:

    I picked up a used Fender BXR 60 - its rocking the house already and I don't even have it on 3 lol.

    My tuner is acting weird though...it's supposed to do both bass and guitar. I get the E string OK, but the A, D, G don't seem to pick up right.
  6. Check your pickup height maybe?

    I got it - the A string was pretty tight. But I got it and it sounds very good. Well, good technically but not very good with my newbie fingers on it yet.

    I'm going to start slow. Tough because I want to jam but how can you jam when you don't know anything?? lol. I love it!
  8. Thats a sweet lookin bass right there my man!

    Welcome my friend! Nice axe! Keep up the practicing, and you'll be jamming with friends in no time! Playing with people is always the best way to learn, in my opinion, so never turn down a opportunity to play, especially with somebody better than you.
