Hey all, new member here. Been playing on and off for the last 30 years or so. Sadly, more off than on. Profile pic is from my first live gig in November '88 (Japanese Squier P-bass that I regrettably sold back in the 90's, along with my '75 Ibanez Les Paul (double regret). Currently in the market for a new P, J, or PJ bass (new Squier or a used Fender). Buying gear on a teacher's salary is tough. Got into playing bass after becoming a Rush nerd in high school, and realizing in college that the world was awash with guitar players, so I picked up that MIJ Squier at a music shop in Portland, Maine and did the college band thing until the real world kicked in.
