Alrighty here, I know that here on Talkbass, there are some bassists that have been around the block more than a few times. I was just wondering if anybody has ever heard of Applause. When I first started playing bass, I was kinda thrust into the position by my band, yet I had no bass equipment at all. I'm probably one of the only bassists around to be the bassist of a band before I truly started playing. Anyay, since I had no equipment and no money, I borrowed my friend's bass. It was a standard 4 string passive bass, black and at the headstock said Applause. Unfortunetly, his father took it so I can't take pictures to show you. I wish I did have it though, it certainly has a lot of sentimental value. I mean come on it's the bass that made me realize my reaso for existence...bass. So I'm trying to get it back. But on with the question. Has anyone every used or know anything about this brand. I searched online and found nothing, except apparently they still make acoustic guitars. I wonder if this is some ultra rare awesome bass or just a dookie bublegum brand, either way I loved that bass.
