Fender Jazz Bass, 1972. . . .

The fact that I haven't made a list of all the
ones I have done yet and considering that I
still have most of what I have listed and have
still got quite a way to go, I am now starting
to forget which ones I have done!!!
I think it's a fairly safe bet that I haven't done
this one, as I only have a few shots of it.




















As  you can see from the title. . . . It's the one in 
the middle!
The Precision on the left is now in the safe hands
of a fellow player - you know who you are when
you see this - Hi. :)
The Precision on the right, I still have and have
done a feature about that one before.

Fender Jazz Bass 1972 


I lusted after one of these for a long time, my friend
has one, which I have shown before - he had his
from new and was lovely to play, so when I was able
to, I managed to find this one, which is in superb 
condition and plays "as if it's got magic in it"
I have had it some years now but only gig it at venues
where there is plenty of room and Mr 8 Pints can't
roll into it, if you see what I mean!!
 
I won't go into great detail today, as I don't have much
time and I need to get some more shots of it.
So, when I have them, I will come back to it with a big 
feature.


I will try and be more frequent with my posts, as one
comedian (long time bass acquaintance) - yes you. . . 
has mentioned that I have gone off the boil!
Rubbish, my friend - I've just been busy!! :)


So, 'til the next time.


Cheers. :)

New set-up!

Hi to all. :)

Back in harness and ready to post up a few more of the 
collection and google has now changed everything 
I am used to!!

I will try and get to grips with it and get posting again!

Anyone have one of the instruments I have, drop me a 
line and share your experience.

Back to the collection on the next post.

Cheers. :)

Joe Bonamassa, WOW! Just WOW!

Just a quick post this morning.

I know this blog is primarily about my collection but every
now and then, it is good to wander off and add some other
shades to the pallet.

Went to see Joe Bonamassa, last night, with some friends
who are also fans.




To say we were blown away, is an understatement!!

I've seen youtube stuff, listened to a lot of his music, both
on his own and with other artists but to see him live. . . . . .

The sound at Nottingham was, from where we were sitting,
one of the best I have ever heard.
He played a variety of Les Pauls, a Gretsch, with a Bigsby,
I think - we were some distance away, a Telecaster, another
guitar, sort of Strat/T-60/JS shaped but couldn't see clearly
a white Gibson Twin Neck and an acoustic, which was without
doubt, the best I have ever heard in a large venue/concert hall.

No support, no messing around - Just like Peter Frampton, last
year - got on stage, got started, kept going.
Just brilliant!!

A night, never to be forgotten

To Joe Bonamassa - You were truly great!!

Cheers. :)
