  1. Just random curiosity here:

    Was anyone here around when the first electric bass came out? Did anyone get one? I know not many DBers like EBs now a days, but did they accept them back then? Like I said, just random curiosity...

    i did my history fair project on the fender bass.

    it didn't get much respect from a large majority back then. in fact, leo fender thought that most of his sales would come from country bass players, but it was the jazzers who took the most liking to it, initially.

    so that kinda tells you how well-respected it was.

    the ''bastard" instrument:

    Buy or borrow "The Bass Book" by Tony Bacon! A great read (and some wonderful photographs to look at) for all BGers interested in the definitive history of the instrument!
