    Hey guys. When I was younger, I didn't record myself playing bass. I recently came across one of the only pictures I could find of me with my first bass. I had rented my first bass from a local music store. Theres no headstock in the picture, and I knew quite nothing about basses at this time. The only info I can recall about this bass is that it was a shortscale, if that helps. Please tell me what bass this was! I've attached the picture to this thread. Hopefully someone can come in clutch and tell me what I was playing. Thanks in advanced bass wizards!

    Looks like it could be a Hamer Slammer SB4. I had one a few years back when I was giving short scale a try unnamed.jpg

    Got one of those for my kids....they actually managed to lose it. It was a pretty nice bass.
