Hey there guys, I am planning to either buy a Fender AM std. or a '62 reissue bass. Now the only real reason for me to buy a 62 bass is the nitro lacquer. I want to ''funkify'' a bass all by myself. Now would it be possible to so with the newer American std? I don't really care for the neck size differences (I am an upright bassist, I can do 'em all). I do love the Motown sound, but I am just an hobbyist who just to happen to enjoy playing the bass, so I don't need to nail the sound exactly. I just want a bass that would have some serious mojo in in the future. Thanks for reading guys, Rama P.S. I am not sure if I am on the correct section of the forum.
