    Since Returning to Active Duty here at TB a Short Time Ago I've Noticed that Many Questions Are Asked Repeatedly....and These ANSWERS May Help You in Your Quest to Become the Perfect Bassist.

    #1. At the Age of 5 Years Take a Vow Never to Marry...as this will Severely Screw Up Your Never-Ending Need for More Gear.

    #2. Ask NOBODY what you should buy for Gear because YOU are Smarter than all of us.....BUT...Having Said That,.... The Answers are:

    A Fender P-Bass; a Fender J-Bass (it doesn't matter what year they were made--ignore all that weird stuff about one year being better than another. That only applies to Wine); a Music Man Bongo (when fully loaded it's THE Most Versatile Bass in the Galaxy and co-designed by BMW); A Music Man Sting Ray 5; A Vintage Ric and a NEW Ric; A Hofner (just cuz you'll never find true happiness without one); a Vintage Vox (Phantom or Teardop--it matters not, but a wide neck/ebony fingerboard); a NEW/Made in KOREA Danelectro Bass (didn't see that one coming did you? $400 and they're a Bass from Heaven).....and Finally....

    Your Dream Bass. Personally I'm an MTD (M-agnificent T-one D-evice/Michael Tobias) kinda' guy......but there are MANY Dream Basses. Ask NOT what Woods to Get, etc. Your Heart and Your Builder will Help You. After all, it's YOUR Dream....not Ours. :)

    Small Print: Your first Purchase should be a set of Straplocks (Essential) and a High Quality Cable that Costs about $150. (Begin Saving for those when you're 10 Years of age and have a Paper Route) Those Who Told you that you're NUTZ for buying a GREAT Cable may not hear a Difference cuz they're about 85 years old, are often nearly killed at Railroad Crossings...they Wear Depends, play BLACK basses ONLY... and they can't hear Squat.....but YOU can. :)

    Finally: NEVER Loan your Bass to ANYONE.....Don't even let anyone else PLAY it! The stories of Doom and Gloom from Doing so are Endless.

    There Ya' Go.......You're a Bass Player....the Highest Form of Human Life. Be Kind and Create a Musical Path for Others to Follow. :)

    Bass-ically Yours,

    Your answer is incorrect. The Correct answer is Spector /End

  3. Thanks so much for this, I giggled all the way through and nearly spit my drink on my keyboard with a belly laugh.

    Love your sense of humor - and the Dalai Lama quote is priceless....

  4. How do you type like that? It makes my head hurt trying to read that.
