    Default my first bass

    Well, with three electric and 2 acoustic 6 strings of my own, my daughter's (7 years old) left handed short scale electric and acoustic guitars, my wife's mandolin and banjo, and my son's drums, I figured we were way to treble oriented. So I just won an auction for a Mustang Bass, reissue MIJ. I probably should have asked you all if it was a good choice ahead of time, but Fender has never let me down, and I thought the short scale would be most versatile in the family.

    I am thinking about getting a cheap Frontman bass amp for around the house. any thought on that for noodling around on?

    I've got a Rumble 100 that I use pretty heavily for gigging and it's a very very versitle and reliable amp. For the price it's a great amp. Of course there's better out there, but we're not all rock stars with big budgets :-P

    The Rumble 60 would probably be great for around the house. I know a guy who used to use one gigging and it seemed to hold up ok. I wouldn't go any smaller or else you'll lose all the bass and get too much of a trebley sound.
    Insert witty comment here:

    It came. My son literally took it out of my hand and played it until his bedtime. I think I'm alright with that. Rock on little man.

    Right on. It's great to be raising a little bassman around the house. 8)

    The world really does need more good bassists. 8)
    When in doubt, gas it out.

    No doubt. I was in my twenties when I found out that I wasn't going to be the next Eric Clapton, and had an opportunity to play bass in a band. I borrowed a bass and an amp, auditioned, and became instantly "in demand." The next week I went and bought a Fender P-Bass and a Bassman 50 amp, and started making money with it. A simple conversion to an employment that kept paying for years, and I could still play guitar whenever I wanted to. 8)
