"funny, ironic observations - "not buying a Fender Electric Bass....so......"
Things in the USA...hmmmm...don't look all that great...yes?
trumpy GOP seems like they are going further and further..2022 Midterms?
I was planning buying LOT's of musical instruments, musical equipment with my expected tax return money...but now...don't know about really engaging in some type of "entertainment plan/musical program" with a resurgent trumpy GOP getting stronger in this country.
Many folks got to "keep on" with their plans, hopes and dreams in the USA, no matter what happens politically...because they got to care for their families, build wealth, etc.
I don't have kids, either.
So..I was like:
"Man, some people trying to "get ahead in the USA" gonna have a tough time if the GOP really starts "Steve Bannon-ing" this country completely..."
"I'm not buying an electric bass guitar...so I'm okay."

is priceless...esp in this climate of not being able to move about freely in the public and do the things we used to do pre covid. ive been playing guitar for a long time but i also have a bass that i mess around with and recently started piano lessons again after many years (basically starting from scratch).
most ppl considering getting an instrument at this age have a love for the music (which id wager is the case based on your musical knowledge and difft posts youve made) indulge yourself homey you wont be mad.

I say that as a bass player who has had dozens of basses over the years, and in almost every case I sold them for more than what I paid (exceptions being when I bought new.)
On top of that the quality of basses available on the lower end of the market is INCREDIBLE vs. what it was 10 years ago. Fender Squires are great basses now. I bought a 5 string Squire P bass as a backup to my main Sadowsky and MTD basses for the gigs where I don't want to bring a $5000+ instrument to a random bar, and that Squire absolutely still gets the job done.
