So I dragged Michelle to a music store tonight. I wanted to price some acoustic basses, as I've been thinking about getting one to take to camp (her Dad and his friends play guitar, but they have no bassist and I only have an electric).
Well, I spotted a gorgeous little Curbow electric right off the bat. After playing every acoustic in the store, I went back and got the electric. I got a little 70 watt amp to take to camp along with it. My stage rig is in storage on the other side of the country and is as big as a house anyway.
I'm ultra picky when it comes to guitars, but this one jumped right out at me. It felt right from the start, and I haven't even set it up yet. I can't wait to restring it and set the action.
The best part is the red flake metal finish. It looks like a bass boat!
Special thanks to Michelle who schmoozed the sales guy and got me $100 off the whole package.
