Lurking for about six years- I thought I’d joined, but I find I haven’t. Lol I’m a member of TDPRI as well, as I have a Telecaster....Bass that is! Also noodle around on guitar as well- have been acquiring too many basses and guitars now I guess, but you know the old theorem, “ If “x” equals the number of guitars you own, and “F” is the optimal number of guitars, then F = x+1” Looking to get a plain Jane Tele guitar presently. My latest bass acquisition is a mint green Ibanez Talman TMB-100 with a maple fretboard- I plan to throw a set of Rotosound black tapewounds on it soon- I’ll post a pic now, and another thread later with the strings- I’ve just been doing the “mess around” on it with the stock roundwound strings- I’m really a flatwound guy, so it’s a bit zingy! Also have a couple of Fenders (Classic 60s Jazz, and the 68 Telecaster in my avatar) a Squier VM Jaguar (long scale p/j with stacked V/T knobs) and an Epiphone EB-3 in the cherry finish- I’m in a local “Rez” band out here on Najajo Nation in Northern Arizona- we are all healthcare professionals with the IHS (Indian Health Service- agency of Federal Government). Doctors, Optometrists, Nurse Practitioners and Pharmacists (me and my wife- she plays rhythm guitar- lefty) Well I’m glad to finally be on board. This site is awesome, and I usually find answers to any questions I have- it will be nice to be able to contribute and comment on all the great stuff here! Cheers! Carl (C-Note) E.
