And I mean from in front of a stage as an audience member, not on-stage as a performer. Some memorable ones for me, and these were all small to medium-size clubs. 1. Fender Jazz Bass played by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes' bass player at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ back in the 70's. Black, white PG, black block inlays. Great bassy tone, yet every note was crystal clear. Got my first Jazz after seeing this show. 2. Rickenbacker 4001, some band whose name escapes me, at the Giulio's South bar in Asbury Park in the late 70's. I owned Rics and never got anywhere near as good a sound as this guy got. My Ric always sounded thin and indistinct; his had lots of bottom but still had the clarity Rics are known for. Always regretted not asking him how he did it. Can't recall the amp. 3. Music Man Sabre, a band called Heat at a bar in Atlanta in the late 80's. Have wanted a Music Man ever since, could never afford it!
