I mean the color of my new (and first) bass, an SX JB-62C. Of course the moody teenager trying to find the bassline to a Decemberists song is gorgeous...that's my daughter. Actually I wanted the Vintage White SX as that would have matched my '82 Strat. But that one sold out so the green kinda jumped out at me. The color reminds me of cars that were still around, just barely, when I was a kid. With the white guard it would go nicely with a two-tone Edsel! As this is my first bass I don't have a lot to compare it to, but the frets seem nicely finished and intonation is good. Action is a bit high so I'll be working on that. There are some flaws in the finish but for $150 shipped I don't care. It sounds okay as far as I can tell, running it at low volume through my Fender Blues Jr. The pickups needed some height adjustment....just like a Strat. When the treble's potted up with either pickup alone, it gets noisy...just like a Strat. Heck, it feels just like an oversize Strat! Next to come is a gig bag and at some point maybe a practice amp, hopefully a used Minx or something like that. A full rig can wait until someone wants me to play with them. As a guitar player for 30 years on and off (mostly off!) I am not a complete beginner, and in the last few days I've had a lot of fun trying to cop lines from Rick Suchow's Jamerson tracks, and youtube gems like Patrice Rushen's 'Forget Me Nots,' Jamiroquai's 'Runaway' and 'Space Cowboy,' etc. Not to mention 'jamersonshook' who seems to have put up every funky bassline ever recorded. The generosity of people who put that up to share just boggles the mind--what a great learning tool. I've learned a lot from lurking here the last several weeks and I'll be doing a lot more. At some point I hope to make a contribution myself. Thanks everybody!
