I'll try to keep the background brief. Health problems have led to me not being able to play. All I can do is plunk out a few notes. So I donated my Ibanez SR700 to a good cause. Eventually it started to feel just all wrong that I didn't have a bass. I still think of myself as a bass player. So I made an impulse buy. I bought a Fender Classic '60s Jazz Bass. It looks just like the pre-CBS Jazz Bass I played during my best years. I almost feel like I got my first real bass back. Except the new one came with round wounds. Can someone suggest some flat wounds that might sound and feel like the ones Fender was putting on Jazz Basses back in the Sixties. I bought my original pre-CBS second-hand, but I'm assuming they are the same strings that were there when the bass was new. Anyway, I realize this might all seem silly, considering my limitations. But I'm mostly homebound, and this is something I could enjoy.
