Just bought my first bass....

  1. Since threads like this are boring without pics, here's a stock photo until I can borrow a camara;


    The one I chose was a Godin passive 4-string in the same finish as the active 5 pictured above.

    I liked it's sound and prefered it's feel to the other basses I tried. G&L taking a close second and EBMM third. It was a close call between the 4 and 5 string versions as I really liked both, but they didn't have a 5 a finish I liked, so that basically decided it.

    Anyway, it's a friend of mine who owns the shop, so he's holding it for a day or two to go over it and fine tune the setup for me. I can't wait....

    P.S. - I start lessons on Monday. :cool:

    Personally, I have no experience with that bass, but sounds pretty good.

    Welcome to the magical world of the Electric Bass Guitar!
    Well done with the Godin, I have not played that particular bass, but other Godins I have played have been very good quality instruments.

    Good choice taking lessons. Taking lessons will help keep you from developing bad technique and will make you a much better player than you might otherwise become. Stick with it!
