This is related to a recent thread, in relation to our lust over a bass heavily associated with a player, aka, I want to sound like Sir Paul, so I bought a Hofner.... Here's a sad story to start. Just when I was beginning to get "chops," Stu Hamm was all the rage. I saved for months to get a Kubicki, only to play one and realize I'd never sound like him no matter how much time was spent trying to play Moonlight Sonata in the woodshed. My personal solution was to buy a fretless J so I could cop Jaco. So here's the first 2, albeit, failed attempts... Jaco: Fretless Jazz Bass Stu Hamm: Old School Kubicki Let the games begin!!!!!!!
