My dad decided to go looking around guitar stores and pawnshops today and I bought this black Epiphone P bass copy (I think it's called Accu-bass) for about $110 No all stock except the thumb rest was removed by the previous owner. It's my first bass so I didn't want it to be anything really special. It's punchy sound wise.



Also my dad bought himself this Fernandes Monterey which I won't show in pics because who cares right? (my dad dragged me out to play the guitar to see how it sound since he can barely play)

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Thats because Epiphone actually did something smart and copied Fender instead of churning out another mud machine.

TS, congrats on the acquisition, and happy new bass day!

Yeah, an amp is a handy thing to have when playing an electrical instrument

This is the funniest but truest thing I've heard in a long while!

I own one of those basses. It was my first bass (given to me as a Christmas prezzy 17 years ago by my husband). I still have that bass and its one of my main gigging basses. Mine is white and pictures are on the profile.

Word to the wise--the factory electronics are shite. Get yourself a good set of SD Quarter pounders and that punch will be amazing. And with a set of flats on it, the tone is lush and works for jazz, rock and punk, as well as blending well in an acoustic guitar group.

And get yourself a Kustom KBA10 amp to start with. For the price, its loud for a practice amp and quite economic. They go dead cheap second hand.
