Hello all! I've been using TalkBass as a source for all things bass related for ages, so thought I'd finally take the plunge and join. I'm old (in my fifties), been playing for nearly 35 years (I may even become competent one day), and have got far too many basses and amps, but am always on the look out for something new. I've recently got into modding and building my own basses, with varying degrees of success, but it is enjoyable, and a great way to learn. I'm looking forward to learning even more, and possibly buying more basses - after all, Picasso had more than one paint brush!
