I talked in a thread a few weeks ago about getting to play bass at with our praise band and church and totally loving it. Well, the next Saturday our worship leader calls me and asks if I could play again that next day since the bassist he had lined up backed out at the last minute. Of course I agreed and borrowed the bass from him.
After have so much fun the second time, I knew it was only a matter of time until I had a bass of my own. Fast forward to Dec 26th, day after Christmas. My wife and I are near Atlanta, GA at my inlaws and slip out to shop some. We pass a music store and she asks, "Do you want to go in?" Uhh, yeah!
Was a great little shop and they were trying to clear out inventory before the end of the year. I played a few, a Japanese Fender that was sweet, but a little out of my price range. I would up going home with a Peavey Millennium BXP 4 string bass. It's a standard jazz bass style, sounds great and plays like butter. Before I found this I had looked hard at an Ibanez and a Squier Classic Vibe jazz, but this one sounds as good as either of those for a good third off the price.
Oh, and a sort of PPS, I'm now officially the bass player for the church band every 1st and 3rd Sundays!
love the uke. the bass is very cool looking. I have been checking bass guitars out and like you can't afford the really nice ones, don't care for the inexpensive Fenders. haven't seen that model in the stores up north. nice find. and bass IS fun to play.
Congrats on the new bass & your new "gig". Enjoy them both. :D

Yeah, bass is very fun to play. I play my bass more frequently than my guitars.
Welcome to the bass player club, you're gonna love it.
Congrats on the new bass - I love that finish! 8)
