Yesterday I went to my cousin's house to check out his collection of instruments and jam out just a tiny little bit and he let me play his bass...... A 1964 Fender Jazz Bass. All original except a Badass bridge (original bridge and all hardware/ashtrays in the case). Wow. I didn't even know what to play on it I was so overwhelmed. I wish I had my '67 Blackface amp to play it with. - speaking of which, talking to him (he has a LOT of vintage instruments) I decided that I really do need to get an amp for my new gigging band. I can not use my '67 Bassman as my everyday bass rig any more despite the fact that it renders The Holy Grail™ of bass tone. As far as I'm concerned this is orders of magnitude cooler than anything I've ever laid my hands on, and I've had Brad Johnosn over to my house for a GTG so that's really saying something! The sound was amazing, the pickups and my fingers aligned to make some nice music. Sounded kind of like my '97 passive USA jazz actually..... But a little better.
