Howdy! This is my first NBD here on TalkBass, so I figured I'd start out with a doozie!!! May I introduce to you, my lightly used Left-Handed Custom Shop '64 Jazz Bass NOS in seafoam green... My first "real" bass was a late 80's MIJ Oly White Jazz with which I pretty much learned everything I know. Eventually, I RUINED it when I scalloped the fingerboard (Thanks Billy Sheehan!) and sanded off the finish, taking lots of wood with it. Since then... I've tried to replace it with various other J's, but nothing quite captured the magic of my first one... UNTIL NOW!! This beauty plays, feels, and sounds PERFECT... I am so completely and totally overwhelmed with joy, I can barely contain myself. I am officially a happy camper... woooot! I'd like to give an extra special shout-out to timmarks, because he is the cat who was able to connect me with her.
