Here she is

17 05 2009

For the last month or so I’ve been meaning to post pictures of my most recent instrument purchase.  She’s a 1997 Epiphone Accu-Bass.

Supposedly she has a plywood body, but she has really, really good sustain.  Sometimes I can get the growl I want but I think she sounds better in the mids.  Her action is good and she’s pretty easy to play for a 34″ scale bass.  I haven’t weighed her, but she’s a tad heavy when strapped and over my shoulder.  I suppose that will just take some getting used to.

For $300 out the door I got the bass and an 80 watt Kustom amp.  The bass is definitely worth all of $150, which is what the pawn shop guy was asking for her.  I s’pose I paid full price for the bass but saved some money on the amp.

Hopefully when the NHL playoffs end — I’m loving watching them this year — I’ll be able to get back to more playing.  I feel like I’m missing out on quality time with my new girl. (That’s a joke)
