Dean Evo XM Bass.

It's nothing too great, but it's doing the job.

My first bass is an ESP F-254. A monster of a bass... 24 fret Neck-thru, EMG-HZ pickups and an active EQ. I crank the midrange all the way up and its like getting kicked in the chest.

My newest bass is an Ibanez ATK-300. I saw it hanging on a wall at GC and it leapt into my arms and went out the door. Theres just something about it... the fatty neck, the tripple coil pickup, the active pre-amp... I dont know. Its an Earnie Ball Stingray on steroids Very Happy

My bass history:

1962 Fender P-bass, sunburst, acquired around 1972, Newport, RI, paid maybe $150. Sold 1981, Belasco Music, Chicago. Excellent defensive weapon in some of the dumps I played in those days.

196-something Mosrite Celebrity, red, acquired 1973. Lake Geneva, WI- never liked it, don't remember where I got it, what I paid for it, and what became of it - those were weird times.

196-something Hofner 500/8, natural finish - acquired 1974, my main axe for years. Again, don't remember where bought and how much paid. See above. Still have the case with its psychedelic paint job and crossed-out band names up in the attic.
Sold Belasco Music, Chicago, 1981.

1970 Gibson Les Paul Bass, maybe 1976, Beloit, WI. Paid maybe $450.
Sold Belasco Music, Chicago, 1981.

Current: Jay Turser JTA-Q5 Acoustic-electric 5 string. This year, swapped a busted Gibson J-40 for it in Oneonta, NY

Representative pix of the first four and actual of the JT below:


As you can see, I've laid off the bass for a spell. But I'm back now with a Carvin LB75. I'd give a kidney to get the Hofner and Les Paul back.

ahh.. I never put mine in here. The one and only (probably for a long time):

Fender P-bass Lyte (MIJ)



Also currently THINKING about a Geddy lee signature, or a Highway One.

Is it true what i hear that the "inlays" and "binding" on the Geddy Lee are just painted on under that poly coat?

It is nice. got it for cheap with a fender hardshell case too. just needed some TLC from my guitar tech. It's got an active preamp, which is cool, and the pickups are good as well. some have said they sound thin, but I haven't noticed this to be the case. It's also got a smaller body and J-neck, so it's more nimble feeling.

I hope you never have hand and wrist problems that make you choose between giving up playing or getting a "kid sized" bass.

Sorry , I didn't mean to offend I was just playing. I do have wrist problems ,but its picking hand, gets inflamed easy, part of an older jobsite injury. But I would most surely scale down and never quit as you are doing if the need arose.

No problem.
Speaking of the picking hand, I still haven't been able to use a pick on the SX without the E rattling. Will have to try thinner ones and see what happens. The action will stay as it is, I was able to get it pretty low for an inexpensive short scale.
