I've got my skootplank, I can go swimming, but that still leaves me open to abuse the hotel bar.
So, when I was in Stroud a couple of weeks ago I saw this for sale:-
Went back yesterday and bought it. Its a 2005 Squier Jazz Bass Standard, Indonesias finest. And pretty cheap too.
When I tried it out the neck action was shocking but I thought it probably needs the truss rod adjusting. No, the strings were so tight that they were bowing the neck. Tuning it properly, with a bit of bridge and truss rod adjustment and it plays real nice. Very different sound to the Rickenbacker 4001 I have. Sweet geetaar.
Gotta get my funk on now;-)
