: At another bass site I stumbled upon,(Robby forgive me) a survey they had said
: that 80% of bass players thought that Fender basses were the best. What the
: survey didn't include, but, I found out is:
: 9 out of 10 Ducks surveyed said they didn't mind a rainey day.
: They actually liked fowl weather.
: 10 out of 10 killer whales said they had never been to Wales.(Cardiff?)
: 10 out of 10 airline pilots admitted that they "get high" on the job.
: 7 out of 10 people who read the menu at the diner asked: If I have the
: chef's salad, what's he going to eat?(Same with Shepherd's pie)
: 1 out of 1 Micksters is quitting while he's ahead.
: Good weekend all,
Mickster, I hope you were joking about that survey...No disrespect to Fender, but
Been there Done That! I have owned Fenders J and P, Gibsons, a Rick 4001 among
others. I now have an inexpensive Samick fretless and one custom DP bass with an
Alembic P/J setup and electronics and another DP custom with a Bartolini J and
Musicman style pick ups with Bartolini electronics. And I am the happiest
Bass Player on the planet. I wouldnever go back to Fenders. Now I started
playing in the early seventies when Fenderwas pretty much IT. But these days
there are many many basses "better" than Fender in the same price range. Personally
I think the company went downhill after Leo left anyway. But all of this is just
one man's opinion.
