I caught this video on YouTube the other night and figured I'd share it here since it talks quite a bit about his Fenders:



This guys video's are quite well researched.

Pretty cool video. 8) I don't know about not choosing to be a bass player or not, since I never wanted to be a guitarist before that. Actually, I had no musical aspirations at all. It was a high school friend of mine who started playing guitar, and one day he decided for us to start a band. I was like, OK, and not a clue what a bass even was. I used to think it was just another guitar, but had four big strings on it. :P

I'm a died in the wool bassist myself and always wanted to be. Why is a weird story:

If you remember the old 1980's GI Joe action figures that had "File Cards" on the back of the packages my first one was Rock N Roll and on his File Card it mentions him playing bass guitar. That made me want to learn. I know weird. Now I'm hooked.

I actually have one of those Furman Preamp/Parametric Equalizers that I found on the street. It needs a little TLC as she of the controls don't work but it still carries signal all the way through. I'm thinking about getting it fixed up.

I remember and had those G.I. Joe figures. I remember the file cards, as well. I think I cut them out and saved them. :P That's all long gone, now. Too bad, since a lot of that stuff is worth some money, I think. Although, that's usually stuff still in packages and not played with, which obviously I didn't do.

That Furman is not a bad find, especially if it relatively still works.

I clipped the cards too. I still have a lot of those old toys at my Dad's place in Maine. In good condition too.

I was thinking about getting the Furman up and running in my rig for 2 reasons. First to help put different bass lines function differently have different tones. The other is when I play live to compensate for different room sounds.

The only thing I have left is a bunch of old comic books that my sister found in a box when they moved from Florida to North Carolina. She still has them with her, as far as I know. I was supposed to get them shipped to me, but I have yet to do that. I haven't seen them since the early to mid 80's, I think.

That sounds like a good idea. What do you think you'll have to do to get it working correctly?

I don't know yet. I've been looking for repair people in my area. It doesn't seem like an expensive job.

Probably not, since it does work somewhat, from what you've said.

Yeah a couple of bands of EQ don't work at all but it seems alright besides.
