  • Squirer Fretless Jazz Bass

    Having been inspired by John Cale & Mark Sandman to take up slide bass .......and waiting for a couple of decades , it was time.

    I found a Squire fretless jazz bass with duncan designed pick ups. bought, it brought it home and now I pursue yet another muse.

    I  am pleased with the instrument and take great joy in playing the bottom part of slide pieces in the lower octives that the  bass offers. Exciting and compelling would be a way of describing the change.

    Per usual it's now a matter of practicing a lot.

    I am blessed with a tin ear, I love poorly made cheap guitars,and terrible sounding amps though I do prefer solid state amps over tubes.

      Happy New Bass Day. Play it in good health. I'm a rhythm guitarist who noodles around on bass but I'm chicken to try a fretless.
