TBers, I am very sad today beacuse my Mother had a heart attack last night and died this morning. Although I really miss her, she was a great Mother and among the many great things she did for me was give me my first bass. It was actually a pretty bad J-copy from Korea back when Korean basses were pretty weak. That said, it was a sacrifice for her and I always appreciated it. I am just wondering if anyone else got his or her first bass as a gift, and what was it?
