What has talk bass done for you? AS FOR ME EVERYTHING This is one site that should be come along with every new/used bass. I personally have been able to ask questions here from theory-to set up, and have even traded and purchased basses here from other members here. There is all kind of wisdom here in all of the different forums from all the members of this site, FWIW, if you don't have access to private lessons etc, this is the place you can get answers. One of the best features of this site is how we can agree to dis-agree about different subjects with out people getting to offended. GTREAT MODERATORS, GREAT PLAYERS,GREAT TEACHERS, all from the "I just got my new bass and dont have a clue what to do next,please help" to the "Why you should only turn you trust rod 1/4" at max, and let it settle for a day or two" crowd, this place has given me much knowledge. Sellers of basses should make sure the buyer has the following: 1: a good set of strings 2: a good gig bag 3: a good set up 4: a warrenty 5: a card directing them to www.talkbass.com I thank you all for the info you provide here Peace and Blessings to ya!
