Hey everyone, I'm popping in here from Ed's Gibson group.  My wife's got an early 80's original fretless Hofner Violin bass in great condition with original case AND a bullet case.  She can't play it anymore and we're looking to sell.  Please contact me for more info, including more pics.  Thanks!

Don't have any pics of the bass but it's nothing special.  The $250 entry bass.  But I have to admit it is a very easy bass to play and what it lacks is yet to be determined.  It sounds great coming through my new Roland Cube 120XL.

Hey Joe,

Post come pics of the new bass and the Tak bass you are interested in.  I have always wanted THIS Tak bass, but it is a special order only and incredibly expensive!!!  Edward   TAKAMINE TB10

Well, considering the humidity in Costa Rica I finally pulled the pin and bought a Epiphone electric bass.  I'm still looking very interested in a Takamini acoustic/electric bass but I still have to deal with 70% to 99% humidity.  Waaaa!!

1st Bass Guitar & Amp plus my current Bass & amps. Hope they are here this time.

Hey GC, your picture of your first bass and amp didn't come through...can you try again!  Thanks, Edward

 Hi all!  I originally started out as a guitarist in the mid 60's.  A classmate who was a drummer, we started as a 2 piece band.  After we got a real guitarist I switched to bass player.

I played in the group as rhythm and bass guitarist.  I enjoy both but I am a guitarist at heart.  

Here's a pic of my first bass and amp my dad bought for me in 1970 or 1971. Don't remember brand name of the bass & amp, but years down the road wish I still had it.

To current date I own a Dean Edge 4 string bass & Marshall MB30 bass amp as well as other electric guitars & amps.

Playing both bass and electric guitar is now only a hobby as I haven't played in a band since 1973.

Speaking of strings...I have been having an issue with my Breedlove ABJ25/CM4 fretless bass guitar.  The G string does not seem to cut through the mix as loud as the other three - both acoustically and amplified. Could it be the set-up or should I get a slightly heavier gauge string (currently D'Addario PB .045) Any suggestions?

JustStrings are great folks, I only order from them, they have any set you could think of, good prices too(except LaBellas, but no one has good prices on LaBellas)been doing business with them for years.
