Was this anybody's first bass?

    I keep seeing guys on this forum near weepy with nostalgia over their long-lost first bass.
    This is a 1964-era Silvertone (Teisco) that I have hanging on my wall, and it made me wonder: could my wall hanging be someone's sentimental dream bass?
    It works, plays with the finesse of a Louisville slugger, and is relic-ed in a way that would make the Fender custom shop weep with admiration.
    Not looking to sell, unless it really means something to someone - in which case, it just isn't right that I have it and never use it.

    Wow. It isn't mine, but that thing is killer.
  3. Great post. I can't exactly remember the bass I started on in a neighbour's basement in the 60s, but i suspect it was an awful lot like that one. Keep on rockin'!
