I'm guessing it has to be the Fender Precision.
Fender something or Stringray.
The overweight one with a bad combover, coupled with poor taste in clothing.
4 minutes sooner, and I would have had you.
Air Monarch main with New Balance for alternate tunings.
Yeah & J for mom , Alembic for the cool Uncle .
LOL...exactly, I was just posting this when your post appeared...
Someone once called my minty Silvertone 1444 by Danelectro a "dad" bass when I played it at an art gallery. I'm OK with that. Also, the gallery owner/curator wanted to borrow it for an exhibit he was working on of locally produced instruments. Weird night.
I’d say it’s the Fender Jazz.
P Basses are always the youth bass, IMO. They’re the punk rock icon. They’re the bass that that loud, raucous garage band has. They’re the 12-30 year old’s bass. The “rebel without a cause” bass worn low and beat to hell like it gets played with a cheese grater by someone who didn’t have to pay for it. Always played angrily with a pick! The Clash and Sex Pistols bass.
The Jazz is that bass I always imagine as that bass worn really high tucked up under the man boobs or armpit to match the jorts and athletic socks with stripes worn pulled up just below the knees. You know, worn by the guy with the dad ‘stache, who’s rockin’ the dad gut (that the bass rests on of course), and trying his best to hide his receding hairline - normally with a hat, sweet combover, or just an awesome skullett.
The dad Jazz Basses are normally in pristine shape (except maybe a little honest play wear) because hey, that guy paid good money for it and he babies it and what is he, a child? Grown men take care of their stuff! Dads have graduated to the Jazz Bass because their more “mature” musical tastes require that extra pickup. Always played finger style. They all swear they’re gonna start a Rush cover band or Jazz fusion group someday so they need that Jazz!
Yep, the Jazz is the ultimate Dad Bass.
I never doubted your superpowers even once.
I’ve seen many, Many ,MANY dad bands rocking an ibenez sound gear.
Probably even more than the ubiquitous Precision
It’s the light weight and thin neck to compensate for the sciatica and arthritis respectively...
This for the win. I can see that sweaty manboob in that pink polo or Hawaiian shirt plopped on that cutout as we speak.
Fender Precision or Ric.
Whoops sorry!!!!!! I meant a fake-relic'd sunburst tort P bass with flats and a foam mute.
Wow, this hurts. It's way too close to home...
Idk, but I do know that almost every picture of a hot female bass player I see is with a Rickenbacker.
Something very expensive and overly flashy that must only be played at low paying gigs in bars that have more beer company signage, flags, posters, etc than customers on the busiest night.
And he keeps it mint and puts it in the case during breaks. No speck of dust or fingerprint will survive.
Takes belt off for gigs.
