    Strung with TI flats this really sounds great. I use it primarily in a 50's/60's cover band and sometimes in contemporary styled music. Love it!
    Some neck dive, so I use a 3" leather strap... cuts it out mostly.
    Also sanded down the high-gloss finish on the back of the neck... plays much more smoothly.

    Dunno. I'm really quite new to all this (I picked up bass about a year and a half ago)...

    With the cheapo roundwounds shipped I found the D & G strings to be way tinny sounding. With TI flats all four strings have fat depth. The 50/250/500 potentiometer to the right really allows for some flavor to the sound. At 50 it is pretty fat and mellow with only a hint of growl. 250 (and moreso at 500) the sound gains a lot of growl/grit and the flats really keep it fat sounding. OK, like I said, I'm new to all this so I hope I'm describing it in a way that makes sense! :D

    LOL! My oldest daughter is nearly as old as you :)
    Sometimes an old dog can learn a new trick :D

    Good luck saving up! I've also heard good things about the "Artcore" hollowbody (semi? Ibanez?) and it seems to cost a little bit less.

    On the left a Hofner 500/3 Bass, serial number 225, from 1960 I believe.

    On the right an early '90s CiJ Fender Fretless Precision A/E, fairly rare, especially here in the UK.

    I've been looking for a cheap knockoff, but everything I find is slightly different, vintage used, or to expensive. I just want a cheap, new bass with that look that i can beat around for fun :help:

    My Gibson Les Paul Signature and Epiphone Jack Casady Signature are pretty hard to beat if I do say so myself!
