    Nice price even at $120 if looking for some p-bass tones. $100 might be the middle ground. I would snag it!

    Bass is fun to play. I'm 90% bass player, 10% guitar.

    Gotta have at least 1 bass. It comes really handy to record your own stuff.

    When I sit to write some music I always get a different vibe when starting off with the bass. More groovy/punchy/happy. The approach changes radically.

    It doesnt look like a natural relic to me though... for the most part at least.

    Got that old school vibe for sure, and there's plenty of extra room in the case for you to pack a big lunch and a change of shorts.

    Wow if it plays even halfway decent it's more than worth it.

    I became a bass player when ours got transferred and I was the only one in the band that had access to a bass (my brother's). 25 years later I switched back to guitar.

    I'd go look at it. Any guitar that's been played that much, has something really good about it. And, is that a Jazz neck? It really tapers more than a Precision neck?

    I'm better at the bass. It works out well for the band that I am in. I can't play the lead parts the guitars play, and they have no shot in hell of playing the bass as well as I do :)

    I totally agree.

    I'd say, more often than not, once I start laying down the bass lines, any holes in my song start to get filled (and when I say "holes" I mean it both literally and metaphorically speaking).

    Bass can be a subtle background accompaniment or it can profoundly change the entire feel of a song.

    Either way, like the drums, you sure notice it when it's not there...

    That's a steal, especially with the hard case too! The pups probably aren't the greatest but if you just want to dabble in bass a bit they'll probably do the trick.
