My new bass (boat)

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Postby DemoDick » April 10th, 2006, 10:32 pm

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.

That's really pretty!

That is a beautiful bass. I used to play the bass . . . oh so long ago . . .

I set it up this morning. WOW. Ten years ago this thing would have run over $1000 and I got it for considerably less. I got a first run Ibanez Ergodyne in the late nineties and it was about $300 more than this Curbow. Technology has come a long way.

I love this thing. It sustains like a piano and plays easy. My downstairs neighbors are going to have a fit. :)
