After hearing, and liking Bruce, and Pappalardi's sounds, I wondered for a long time now, what Peterson's sounds would've been like with Humbuckings. Think about that one man, it may have been interesting.

I don't know what basses he used, other than the Jazz Bass in the 60's, and I do believe he was using a Precision Bass towards the end there. Do you know anything else with him, as far as that goes? Did you ever see them live, by the way?

Yeah, I was around Cheer for a bit. I only saw him play the Jazz.

That must have been his main bass during that time period, up into who knows when.

I would say so. Somewhat the way the EB-1 was Felix's main bass.

Yeah, it must be something to have a bass long enough to where it's your main bass, or something that your well associated with, like Paul McCartney with the Hofner, even though he's had many other basses, as well. Imagine if you had the same bass (probably the first really decent one, if you started out on a total beater) your entire playing history, or me for that matter, and always using it.

My first bass I stated out with in 1968, was a heavy, red bodied, no-name I used until I received the EKO, in 1969. It was an anchor plus. The neck was like a 2X4 board.

I gave it to a friend to use with his guitar work.

The funny thing, it could be worth some money now. For some reason, a lot of those type of instruments from back then have some collectible value these days. I suppose it also depends on the brand/model, and condition, as well.

I don't think this one would have been worth much at all. It was crap, but it got me going ok. For just starting out though, I was crap too.

We all had to start from somewhere, that's for sure. I think I got lucky for my first bass, since it was a Peavey Fury bass, and it wasn't too bad of a player, from what I remember, which isn't saying too much, since I couldn't play, either. I got that one, because it was the cheapest bass they had in the store, since I didn't even know I was even going to stick with playing or not. It certainly could have been worse. I remember even looking around this one place near the mall, that was some sort of place like Circuit City (if you remember those,) or Best Buy. I don't remember the name, now. They also happen to have some guitars in there, kind of like you'd find in a Walmart, or whatever, but it would have been the late 80's equivalent to that. They didn't have any basses in there, or I could have wound up with something like that. I had no clue about any of that. It's kind of an alien concept now, I suppose.

In the late 60's, along with Sears, Woolworth's .5&.10 cent stores sold electric 6 stringers, and small amps. I don't remember seeing basses there in the .5&.10's though. I don't remember seeing too many Epi's locally around back then. It still amazes me how Gibson has somewhat handed off the majority of their bass series to Epi. I'm by no means complaining. I love my Epi EB-0. My first Gibson was a fine one for back then.

Yeah, I guess basses have always been like a secondary thing, or afterthought in comparison to guitars, or even drums. It seems only recently that there's even been a lot of attention drawn to them with the availability of choices now. Look at all of the bass amps that are out there now, as an example. I'm not even talking about the usual suspects with Fender or Ampeg. There's really a lot of stuff, more so than I know 15 or 20 years ago. Definitely more than 30 years ago.

Yep. Not only availability, but just better design in general.
