Wholy **** I want that Fender Jazz bass in your pics rccote!

I played the cello for 10 year in school, then picked up bass guitar and played in a few bands years ago. Got pretty good at it, could play some of the fun technical *ish. I can hold rhythm on guitar and enjoy dicking around with my acustic guitar...and if need be..hold a beat on the drums.

I'll get a picture of my guitars up later, but here is what I have....

89' Fender P-bass Lyte Deluxe. Japanese made. My prize. Active electronics, P-bass sound with j-bass neck. Basswood body that is pretty damn light. Frost red w/matching headstock and gold hardware. Nice boomy sound, loves slap...nice and warm.

late 90's Takamine EG334rc (iirc) that is a joy to play.

96' Fender Strat. Mexican made...I calle it the Tacocaster. Lake Placid Blue w/solid maple neck. All stock except for the 3-layer black pearl pickguard. LPB seems to be a hard to find color on non-US Strats...so that's cool. I wonder if the older Mexican made guitars are worth much these days considering all the ultra cheap **** out there lol
I actually prefer the styling of the headstock on the MN stuff and the oversized/vintage "Fender" lettering...the US made stuff at the time had that ugly "spaghetti" logo and smaller headstock.

Yeah his Fender Jazz is pretty awesome. So many different configurations possible.

I need to get a Takamine, I love those things.

I'm pretty into music. I especially like older delta blues, the blues in general, rock and bluegrass. I've played guitar for around 5 or so years. Currently I own a Guild DV-6 solid rosewood. It's not the most expensive acoustic in the world, but I can't put it down because of the tone. I've had various strats over the years but I sold them to trade for another/because I ran out of room. I'm looking at building my own tele in the next little bit as a fun side project. I've started to play the mandolin a bit too, I'll get some photos after work.

I played guitar for 2 months when I was 14 then picked up a bass and never looked back. Now i'm 21 and still play atleast an hour a day.

I've had a handful of different bass's but the only one i've ever kept is my Yamaha BB614. I love it to death and don't see myself getting rid of it anytime soon, if ever.

Sorry for the crappy pic but, this is my current rig. I have the Yamaha and the Cort AB5 as my main basses, aswell as a handful of acoustic and electric guitars.

The Galien Kruiger is from the brand new line called the MB series. It's 200 watt and only 33 pounds. Compared to my old crate that was 50 watt and nearly 75 punds. I play it through a Korg AX3000B also with a Danelectro "Dan-Echo" and a Crybaby Bass Q.



I'll post some videos up when I quit being lazy and do it.

You need to hold on to that thing for a while. They started re-issue'n the Jaguar Basses and the price of the orginals is ******* sky-rocketing.

Whatta bunch of clowns. So, having a guitar qualifies you as a musician?

Man.
Myself, 15 years of being a classical musician. French horn.
Up until the time I came over to the States.

Having it doesn't, if you play it I don't see why it doesn't. Good work with the french horn though, those are pretty difficult to master.

Electric guitars: Yamaha Pacifica Tele, Carvin neck-through, Steinberger Spirit, U.S. Masters Vector (current)

Acoustic guitars: Simon & Patrick spruce, Larrivee D3 (current)

Classical guitars: Ramirez 2E, Hippner spruce top Bernabe-copy, Lucida 755, Johnny Walker concert

Amps: Carvin tube combo, Mesa Boogie DC-3 (current)

Mandolins: Flatiron paddle style, Breedlove A body

I don't play nearly as much as I used to. I need to replace the tubes in the Boogie and restring the U.S. Masters.

By the way, not many people are familiar with U.S. Masters instruments, but they are extremely well-made. Fantastic construction.

No, but playing the French Horn qualifies you as a homo...
