    Hey folks,

    Steve here. Brand new bass player, though I have played guitar for closing in on 10 years. Just got a Squier VM Jaguar short scale for Christmas. I know basically nothing at all about bass, but sure enjoy making a little thump noise.

    I also got Rocksmith 2014 for Christmas so may use that, along with a few video beginner bass lessons to get started. Still shopping for a bass amp, and for now will play at house volumes through my old Fender Concert. Anyways, Hello!!

    Thats a good lookin bass you got there.

    Do your best to play like a bass player, not a guitar player who plays the bass.

    Thanks! I really like the vintage Samsonite I am using for a case. It was fun to put together and works great. Plus I can access my inner Eddy Vedder as he uses vintage suitcases from thrift stores to haul band stuff around, play lists, music notes, etc.

    Yep. I actually live in Hailey, a few miles south, but work and play in Ketchum and SV. I was up on the hill today giving an all day private lesson. Other than skiing, I am a lawyer and a Dad, and like to make music when I have time.

    Thanks to all you rest too! i look forward to learning how to use this thing as an addition to my guitar/music addiction. I am selling the djembe I got for Christmas last year as this bass will become my main percussive outlet instead.
  11. Welcome to TB!

    Those are cool basses. I actually have a identical one for sale locally.

    If you look in the "Basses" forum for the SS Jaguar Club, you'll see some astonishing mods that have been done to their Jags.
  12. Welcome!

    Nice bass, enjoy the stay!
