    Man, you'll regret it. It grows on you. And the SPB-3 pickup I got in it will kill and P-bass in its range.

    Great bass, Newbie. Any Seinfeld lover deserves a great bass! I had a P-Bass for a while a loved it. I also think you'll enjoy the rosewood fb on that.

    Find a teacher and, as others have pointed out here, really practice. Play around for fun, but really study and practice your lessons and you'll be changing your "name" before you know it!

  18. great first bass :) enjoy, and be patient, a lot of players quit because it's hard in the beginning.

    Congratulations on your bass! I just bought a used MIM Fender jazz bass in Midnight Blue - it should be delivered later this week.
