- First Bass
I don't know if a thread like this has already been discussed, so sorry if I'm doubling up.
Anyway, I've been playing for around 3 years now and still have my original bass (a Casino Stage Series II in black). I also own a Sterling by Music Man S.U.B.5. I've recently seen a really nice Fender that I'm interested in buying, but don't really have the space to keep another bass, so thought that I'd get rid of my Casino to make way. But when I got home and looked at it, I actually found it quite difficult imagining it being no longer in my life.
So, I'm wondering how many other people still have their first bass? Or if you don't, how long did you hold onto it for before parting ways?
I don't have my 1st bass anymore, wish I did as it would be quite valuable now. I started learning to play on a borrowed Hofner Verithin in the late 1970's. The first bass I ever bought was a Rickenbacker 4003 in 1979 for £375. I owned various bass's over the next few years and ended up selling up to fund growing family (2 kids). About 4 years ago I started collecting cheap copies of the bass's I used to have and a few more besides and at the moment have ten. If you go to the thread “rescued another one” there are photos of various ones that people have. Also check out “beer garden” there is some stuff on there too.
I've recently seen a really nice Fender that I'm interested in buying, but don't really have the space to keep another bass, I don't understand this, I was looking at a nice, and cheap Aria pro 2 on gumtree, the one from the 80s that John Taylor played, then I glanced over at the wife and noticed that the space she was occupying was totally wasted, but then I knew she wouldn't give me 600 quid for another bass.
Anyway, my first bass was a no name Gibson EB3 copy and I loved it but got rid too quick, another one that I loved was a Hohner Steinberger copy, the little cricket bat one with no headstock, it was fitted with EMGs and they were smooth as silk and warm as toast, I really miss it. At the minute I have an OLP Stingray and a Squier VM Jaguar short scale with the J V pups, if you've never played a short scale I really recommend it

So you do like some sort of cricket
