Hello! I've played rythym guitar for a long time, and I thought I'd give the bass a serious shot. I'm starting from bottom (as far as bass is concerned.) I've got a Rogue (yeah...I know...but money was tight) Viloa bass (Hofner copy) and a Beringher amp coming in from MusiciansFriend. S'funny....S&H was free on the bass and the amp....but had to pay S&H on the case. Will be playing in the country-type to light-pop type music.
