Have just felt creatively frustrated the past year and have been looking for something to get the musical magical mojo flow%ng again. Always looking to be a better bassist, pehaps its time for schoolin on being a better musician.

Traded the ironbird, the bantam and another washburn for this ......



I really dig it. The p90's are sweet with vintagey goodness and drive. Plays great!

Will you guys still talk to me now?

sounds just like a guitarplayers reply.

when I'm on the JCF flooding their guitar threads with bass stuff, they don't call me silly....

"take that fender neck off that plank and put a mighty mite on there."

"5W tube amp? thats weak. i aint buying anything under 300 watts!"

"ampeg sucks!"

they have an open board, so swearing is normal and they do a lot.

They absolutely respect me for what I can do, but what I play even if it is a jackson like the rest of them?...hahaa never.

the old " take the b off of bass and that's what you are for playing one" attitude.
I love them all and love the publicity more.

i'm messing with the refinishing guys right now about the legalities of putting a "fender" logo on non fender headstocks.

"i'm gonna send the fender cops after all you guys!"

ha!

oh ya, let the harassment begin, just like TB. "hey gang what do you think of my new Fender, it used to say Squier on it but I wanted people to think it's a Fender"

then you get a flurry of pos and neg posts.

"cool it's yous so what"
"are you that much of a ***** you care what others think" << oh wow you can't say the other word for a cat on this board.
"that's just wrong on so many levels"
"if I see it on ebay i'm gonna report you"

oh hell, the list goes on and on till it's just funny.

Heck, I sometimes play with the idea of getting me a Strat one day to mess around on. Wink

I sold off all my guitars including a nice lefty Charvel 575, but I STILL have my lefty series10 that was the match for the bass Mike redid.

so I never say converting, just "supplementing".

hey eric.

You saw the pic of me with the strat copy hondo. That was a mediocre guitar for $300 back in 87.

Yesterday I played a fender starcaster strat. It was $100. I was really impressed. Played better than that hondo I had. Played better than a lot of $400 guitars I played when I was shopping around. Cant beat a decent guitar for $100. Cheggidoot.

I have two guitars left, a Synsonics noname and a mahogany strat that I built a year or so ago. My others I've sold, except one Schecter I gave to a friend of mine.
