    Mine was my Samick FN1TS...... it's not really that good, but it's what I use now (I'm poor) but I still love it. Good sound for such a cheap bass.
    Here's a pic.

    His name was Hans. He was rugged, yet sensative. Sometimes we'd.....wait a minute, are we talking about basses? :oops:

    Gibson EBO. No top end at all, and neck heavy as all get-out. But low-end for days.

    Then I got my J-bass (which I still have) and I never looked back.
  6. My first love was an absolutely lovely brunette with a godly body AND a brain!!! Proof: She left me! :bawl:

    But that was looong ago.

    Even before that, my first bass was a "midnight blue" Aria Pro ll. I can't remember the model, but it was a P-body shape with PJ pickups and a Jackson-like headstock. But the first bass that I really liked was an MIM Fender Jazz.

    My first bass was a Beatle bass copy by Ventura. It was a serious POS, butit was all mine. I payed for it by not eating lunch at school and keeping my lunch money. I saw it in a pawn shop on the way home from school the second week of ninth grade. I skipped lunch untill April to buy the bass.

    The next year my school bought a Fender P-bass for the Jazz Band program. My director knew the "quality" of my bass and told me the Precision was mine till I graduated if I stayed in the Jazz Band. Obviously I stayed in.

    My first quality bass that I actually owned was a '79 Rickenbacker I bought for $200 in a pawn shop while I was in the Navy. Ship board life is not a healthy environment for a bass. I had to replace it when I got out.

    But I miss all three of these basses. Wierd, huh?

    Orlando J Bass copy. I think of it as my Tin Woodsman bass, because I gradually replaced the neck, the bridge, the body, the PUs, the tuners, and the pots until the only original parts left were the string trees on the headstock!

    My love for the past five years has been my '98 Peavey Cirrus. In '98 they made a very small number of them with the transparent finish. It's as if they WANTED me to devote 80% of my time to this beauty.

    Notice the look of affection on my face :D

    though it was'nt my first bass its definately my first love(as far as a bass is concerned)its an 87 FENDER P/J BASS SPECIAL(japan)i would'nt sell or trade it in for the world. it took me going through 7 basses(buying then re-selling them)before i found her,she is everything i could possibly want in a bass. Looks,sound,quality and reliabilty,you name it she will do it. i get all chocked up inside just talking anout it:bawl: :bawl: I gotta go,i cant even keep on writing i'm all flustered and teary eyed:bawl:
  12. My first was a Jackson C4P. it was a modest little bass with duncan rip-off jazz pups. It was with only her untill i got to college where i moved on to see other beauties.;) I still play her every once in a while to keep the friendship in good standings.:D

    My #1.

    I used to stand and stare at a poster at my local Fender dealer of all of the current production model basses available at the time. This went on for months! :) I finally bought this one (an early '90s '62 Reissue) sight unseen and have never regretted it. It stays at home while the others get to go out and play so I know nothing "unfortunate" will happen to it. I would go insane if something ever happened to just fits, plays, and sounds PERFECT!
