I’m a guitarist who occasionally plays bass—sometimes live, and more often when I’m recording. I’ve had had an old Harmony H22 for a several years, and I love its big, woody sound. It’s not the sound I’d want on every track, but it’s an instrument that never fails to put a smile on my face. Last week I picked up a 1967 Guild Starfire II for $200. The finish is rough (it looks like someone sanded it with 60 grit sandpaper before coating it with varnish), but the electronics, tuners, etc. are all original and in good condition—though it does need bridge saddles. The binding is in great shape, and the instrument is structurally sound. If I keep it, I’ll have it refinished--selling the H22 to fund the work. So, the question is this: Which bass would you keep and why? Thanks for your opinions.
