ruhe10123yI hope you play "hello darkness my old friend.."
@S-Homles your average 6 steel string Squier acoustic.
@S-Homles, crap, nice. I had learnt on a Yamaha F310 acoustic. Very nice. I like Yamaha basses too.
I seem to have switched exclusively to Squier. I'm primarily a bassist, I have a Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazz Bass with a few modifications (not that really cheap one, a rung above that), absolutely solid guitar. Also a cheap Squier strat. Very dependable. And a shitty old Aria bass that I've converted into a fretless by pulling out the frets. With a good bass amp and some creative effects you can get surprisingly nice tone out of this gear.
angryPete23y@S-Homles that Martin must play and sound like a dream.
@oudalally nah, I could never really like that bass, it just felt wrong. This was the lowest of the low end models. Don't mind it so much as a fretless, though that may be due to the novelty of a fretless instrument.
Definitely enjoyed playing it enough to choose bass over guitar though, and I played all the time in school with it, and in competitions, so I guess that counts for something. It's just that I like the Squier bass I have so much more. Very comfortable, superb tone.
@oudalally never tried a Warwick Thumb, or any other Warwick for that matter. Not exactly common here in India. The Fender Jazz design is my favourite, I haven't played anything more comfortable than that.
