Hello all! I've been playing guitar for 25+ years (sax for a few before that) and have recently started branching out to percussion, keys, and bass to get a different perspective on songwriting and expand my musicianship skills. I found TalkBass through a google search for reviews and decided to join since it seems like a cool community and I've seen more than a few basses come through the deals coming through your for-sale area. I'm borrowing a bass right now, but I think I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on buying one of my own. Thank you all for creating TalkBass and for sharing all of your knowledge, experience (and opinion) with the world!
