    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Really, it's almost as old as I am! I was born in 1950 about 1 year before that bad boy.

    Leo put mutes under the bridge cover because that's the sound he liked most. They were the first thing players took out as soon as they plugged in. Leo started a revolution with that bass and it never gets talked about as much as the six strings, no one had ever seen anything like it. Guys were lugging big stand up monsters to gigs often strapped to the top of a car as they traveled from town to town, and as guitars became amplified the bass was buried. Other companies made basses with pick ups but still in the stand up bass design. It was an amazing period in time and one he would never top. Leo struggled to top those first great innovations as his company took on a life of it's own and grew far beyond anything he ever imagined. Leo got it right and changed the musical world forever. Near the end he rarely left his small R&D lab to roam the factory floor and his health was suffering badly. Leo got out at the right time for him thanks to Don Randal. Don was the man who put Fender on the map. They were a great team in the beginning. For a guy like me the history is great to read about I love anything about the post WW2 manufacturing companies that grew up in America. The demand for new products was high and guys like Leo were in the right place at the right time with the right ideas.
