Just wondering, what was your first bass and do you still have it?

Mine was a '79 Vox Custom that looks very similar to this...
(Invalid img)

I still have it but haven't played it for a long time.
It weighs a ton and the neck is massive so it fell out of favour and was replaced by P/J basses.

Good bass though.

Your turn...

An aria igb35 a few months ago, got an Epi thunderbird (holds up flame shield) for stage presence,its really good at boosting up the back end and thumping through at jam sessions and sounds awesome with metallica especially seek and destroy :P

Although we do plan on doing an LOG cover so my backup in Drop D will be my IGB35 which sounds good but its pretty worn now and i got it for £50 so.

Squire P-Bass. No, it was smashed and eventually burned (I still have the electronics to it, though one of the halves of the split kind of broke when the body split in half).

I have an Ibanez GSR-180, that was my first bass.

Now I use my Fender Deluxe American Jazz Bass with 24 frets and five strings instead...so awesome!

Funny, I could never get on with my T-Bird.
I even put a Fender style bridge on it and made the action really low but I just find it really uncomfortable to play. Not too keen on the sound either.
Just my opinion.

Corrected the neck dive already by changing where the strap holder goes :P

The bugger sounds cool when its distorted xD

My first bass was a '66 or '67 Vox Constellation IV that my Dad kicked in half the purchase price in 1973 or there about. Yes, I still have the bass and it still gets played, it sometimes finds its way onto stage.

Last time I took it in to the shop for its once a decade maintenance the comments I got about it ranged from "Dude, that is the ugliest guitar I have ever seen" to "where the **** did you find that?"

That is my first guitar beside it (acquired in 1975) and it is currently in the care of a niece who showed interest in playing.

Ibanez GSR200. It's currently a fretless and eventually I'll replace the pickups, maybe some extra electronic nonsense.

peavey milestone III, really amazing bass for the price i paid, which was under £100 but i cant quite remember it right now, haha.

currently, with a BadAss II bridge on it, my bro uses it to play in his metalcore band, in drop C# tuning. in return, i get to use his electro acoustic sometimes, and his modded SG is my backup guitar for electric gigs.

My trusty Ibanez GSR200, black, currently fretless, with a sparkly blue fretboard and hand painted pickup covers. It'll be celebrating its 6th birthday, I believe in February

I had an OLP stingray for about two weeks and then the circuit shorted and got a thunderbird
#26
For a long time I had borrowed an old Kramer Striker from my friend. Actually.. I haven't given it back yet



Then I got a really nice MIM Fender Jazz for christmas which is my current bass, along with an SX fretless.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

A G-4. Crappy Gear4music own brand one. £100 with other stuff, can't expect a great bass. Still own it but looking to get a Peavey Zodiac BXP.

My Columbus Ricky 4003 copy. Bought for £100 in '91, and I still have it. Sadly, it doesn't do much now - it's in need of restoration. But the sentimental value is tremendous, as it convinced me to stay with bass (the school's Marlin Slammer had a neck like a tree trunk, and nearly put me off).
I'd post pics, but my Photobucket is arsing about - there's pics in my pro.

Quintex - love the Vox!

Drive Wildfire, it came with a cheap amp I still use
After that I got a $30 P-Bass knockoff, a plywood Rogue, and then a much nicer Peavey. I still play all of them.

What, if I may ask, exactly is this? I have a GSR-190 which I know is basically a passive version of the GSR-200, so what's the difference for a 180 do you think?

Cheers.

I learned on an Ibanez ATK300 my dad leant me, then I bought my first bass, Ibanez SR500. Both good basses, I just wish I got the SR505/6 at times.

Every Rogue instrument I've ever picked up sounded terrible too . The Rogue I got for free isn't even worthy of being my mad scientist experiment bass (that honor goes to the B-Bass).
