I'm a P-bass/flats/pick/tube amp guy. Have been for years. I've been having some wrist issues that affected me at a gig last Friday, where we played on a big stage outdoors in about 100% humidity. I don't want to take my '62 AVRI Pbass out to those gigs anymore. Today, while picking up some guitar strings for a classical guitar I recently picked up, I spied this Squier VM Jbass. Thing looked brand new, but it was a preowned, so they had $250 on it. I impulsively asked if they could cut me a break on the taxes...I walked out the door with this thing for $248 flat. It has rounds on it. I plugged it into the Acoustic solid state combo in my living room...and i love the way this thing feels. The neck is fast...I'm using my fingers instead of a pick, I'm toying with the idea of leaving the D'Addario rounds on it... Tell me I'm not wrong for loving this thing.
