I got my new bass!!!!! Today on the way to see my family in San Jose, my dad and me stopped off at guitar center and I got this sweet thang. mine is the exact same color and all but my volume/tone controls are steel colored not black. And I got a new gig bag and this sweet cheetah velvet kinda strap. I had a p bass before and I wanted a jazz and oh my god they are soooooooooooooooooooo much better. The sound is just so, god I can't describe it. After playing my jazz and I don't know how I ever survived slapping on my p. Oh and to hippie holocost, they have some fretless waricks there and I played a few and I must say I wet myself everytime I played a note, they are as you said, angelic. Its so awesome to do a slide and not have any fret noise. Woo.
