Hello everyone this is my first post here. I am a 45 year old newbie to bass playing. Been taking lessons 2 months and still pretty much suck at it (but I will prevail). I always wanted to play bass but never seemed to have the time to get started. My wife passed away right before Christmas this past year so I decided to start taking lessons. I am currently playing a Carlo Robelli Bass, but hey. You can't just have one bass. I had been looking at a used Peavey Fury bass at my local music store the price tag said $219. But tonight I scored me a new bass on eBay. Looked like a good deal to me. Ibanez BTB300BG. Hope I made a good choice for my second bass http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3715859192&ssPageName=ADME:B:BN:US:1 Oh...and I would also like to thank the forum for all the information and knowledge I have picked up so far.
