Blue looks nice but how does it sound? Fenders are best i reckon*
I was very impressed with the Blue semi acoustic bass Roddy, a Jay Turser: www.jayturser.com/jtb-134.php. A nice managable tone, but also some lovely long sustain for when I need it. Handled the reggae parts admirably too. The only two things that kept throwing me are 1) it's a really long scale bass, longer than my other two & B) it's got a heavy headstock, so when you take both hands off the guitar the headstock takes a disconcerting dive for the floor, though never actually reaches it (Tho' I am a shortarsе so it gets quite close......)
Happy birthday Norm. Ill buy a brandy for you next time at a Blockheads gig. Back to Basses, my mates band have said I can sit through a rehearsal tomorrow night and Im gonna have a bash at their bass players guitar just to get the feel, Ive not really played bass before but I suppose if I stick to the tonic notes of a chord then I wont go too far wrong.
