Last weekend, I got to play a 1968 Fender J. Although not a holy grail instrument, it is the first vintage bass I've ever played. It felt great and sounded great. It had all the right worn spots, yellowed paint, cool vibe. It got me thinking. My 2001 Am Deluxe J, bought new, barely shows any wear. It's been played hundreds of times, hundreds of hours, maybe more, and granted, I don't bang it into things, I almost always wipe it down, and it's only been dropped once, but it still looks brand new. Even little dents on the back from my belt buckle failed to chip the finish. I don't think it will ever look relic'ed, nor should I try to make that happen, but it would be sooooo much nicer if it had that broken in feeling and look. I feel like I'm missing something. Thoughts?
