What I will (and will not) be using my shiny new bass for this week.
By Eric Day (Bassist, Composer, Etc.)
Despite the fact that I've been playing bass guitar for about 18 years now, I've never actually owned a brand spakin' new bass of my own...until yesterday! I've had plenty of cool instruments over the years, but I've always bought used stuff. Woohoo, I'm still giddy from the purchase of this beauty: a cobalt blue Fender Deluxe Jaguar Bass!
I played just about every Fender bass for sale in NYC over the last two months and finally found and fell in love with this one. I even had a chance to test it out last night at a rehearsal for this awesome band I've been playing with lately, Sky Pony. It sounded sick! Check this pic from our show at the Knitting Factory last month to get a sense of the pagaentry.
