So, there has been this guy that comes into my job every now and then to get a cup of coffee before he goes to work as a day laborer. Sometimes he comes in at night to say hello to one of the cooks who he's friends with. So one day at about close, he was talking to the guy who plays guitar here on friday nights. He said he was a bass player. My response? "No ****, I play bass too!" So we ended up talking about music. This guy used to be a big-ish bassist in the 80s and went by the stage name of Butch Porter. He played a 5 string spector and a couple of other fivers (don't remember what they are now) and was on a couple of Top 40 and Top 20 records. He's got some videos up on youtube, and I wrote them down, but I can't remember them off the top of my head. In the 90s, everything fell apart for him and he ended up having to sell all his bass gear to pay for rent and still ended up being homeless before starting his career as a day laborer. He ended up saving up enough money to buy himself an amp (an old Trace Elliot combo) and was borrowing his friend's bass. His friend ended up moving and he's been without a bass now for a few years. I let him play the P-bass I had here at work, and I've never seen anyone so happy just to be playing for 20 minutes. The dude could tear it up! So what I'm looking for is a cheap budget 5 string to maybe get him. Money for me, right now, is really tight. Ideally I'd like to spend under $100 bucks, and that'll take me some time to get together right now. Anyone have any suggestions or have an old beat up 5'ver that I could buy off of them. I don't mind fixing it up if its broken.
