    No snark whatsoever. Really profound and insightful imo.
     
  8. Somewhat of an anachronism. But, one that seems to have a devoted following.

    The I Ching of Bass... The Godfather of Bass. "What day is it?"" Monday, Tuesday, Thursday , Wednesday" What should I take to the gig? "Take the Fender, leave the gun" .
    Anything that has to be done with a bass, can be done with a Fender.

    I've been playing Fender basses since the mid 60's. It's meat and potatoes and I know exactly what to expect and what I can do with it. And that means pretty much anything.

    I love Rics, but there is definitely some "Fender P" influence in my tone.

    (Read: Low-mid punch:cool:)
