What was your FIRST TB thread??

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by JMacBass65, Nov 28, 2015.

  1. I like that thread idea, perhaps because I was in a situation like that. Made my first purchase since marriage (18 years) and kids, knew I shouldn't 'cuz we were digging out of a hole, but did it anyway. It was a unique opportunity and a special bass.

    Anyway, long story short - hid the bass from her for two years and she never knew, but if felt guilty as hell. Paranoid when gigging it for fear of a photo revealing my deceit. Couldn't practice freely on it since it was hidden (it's a fretless, I needed to spend time with it, but couldn't).

    Anyway - when my wife was racking her brain trying to figure out what to get me for my 50th birthday, I told her "all I want is your forgiveness" and I came clean on the purchase. She was very forgiving and understanding, and even then thought she should "do something else" for me. I refused, and said "this is it, just let me enjoy it freely" and she agreed.

    She really should have said "sell it, you a-hole", but she didn't. As she has said more than once - "best wife ever".
  2. My first thread was looking for advice on a Petersen Stroborack, which I never did get:

    Peterson Stroborack VS-R

    What was interesting was reading the threads I responded to prior to starting my first; In 2007, many of those threads only had two or three pages of replies and it seemed like everyone read the entire thread before replying. Miss those days. It was also kind of cool to be able to figure approximately when I added to second S18E-D to my Bag End stack, after pondering it for a few months back then.

    Oldest thread I could find was about This 1s Mine and their straight up thieving "business practices." Looks like I failed cuz that scammer still pops up from time to time. I still stand by the fact that he's a dishonest fraud. Run.

  10. First Thread:
    Which Bass Do You Prefer?

    First Post (from Ibanez Ergodyne best bass for low price: Best bass of 1998-Bass player Magazine ):
    "I have a 2006 Ergodyne and it has been my main bass sense then. It is the most well constructed bass I have played. The neck is very smooth and easy to navigate, it seldom goes out of tune (I tune it once a week), I have never had to adjust the truss rod or have ever had a bow in the neck. I have not in any way customized the bass unless you count changing the strings lol. The only problem I have ever had with this bass is the connection to the instrument cable input tends to break easily. This can be fixed by some simple soldering. The tone of the active pickups in my opinion is best for a slap style of playing and to my ears they really lack in punch and the low end. Over all I would rate this bass a 9/10"

    my tastes have since changed lol.....

    The response to my original post was very rude and negative.:blackeye: The response was edited or deleted. Enough said....

    Not sure, but it might have been this one. I rarely start a new thread if there is something already there (even if it's 10 years old) except for build threads.

    Show us your 3 pickup basses!

    I used to have an Ergodyne bass, an EDC700. I loved that bass, but sold it when I started using Jazz basses full time. I wouldn't mind getting another EDC700, at some point. Here's a not-very-clear pic of it:

    Oh, she's fine. It's been years now. She still does get somewhat anxious about music taking me away from family - when she feels like she's not seeing me, I hear it. I've quit projects when there gets to be too much on my plate. But she said pretty early on (after that initial introduction) - "Some women's husbands go have bowling night. Mine goes to band practice."

    This was my first thread, asking for info on a Peavey Dyna-Bass. I got no replies, not even a "Welcome to TalkBass!". :crying:

    (Maybe my own fault for not realizing the no pic/no bass rule)

    To quote many a TB snob: USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION. :):):):):):):):)

    I actually don't know if the one I posted is the very first. Just the first one I can remember.
