A New Toy
At the end of June I made the decision to get a new bass guitar. I've had a cheap Squire P-Bass since 2000 but I've never gotten around to learning how to properly play the damn thing. Now that I have time to play, looking at the Squire didn't give me much inspiration.
So after a quick trip to Guitar Center to see what they had, I went to the Carvin factory here in San Diego. After playing a few of their basses I knew I had to order one. Being left-handed limited my selection so ordering a custom bass was the way to go. I decided on the IC5WP, a 5-string with piezo pickups on the saddle and walnut wood. For options I went with the 5 piece maple neck with walnut strips, abalone black inlays, stainless steel frets and black chrome plated hardware.
Now the search begins for a new amp as my cheap 50W combo isn't cutting it. Oh and now I have to learn to really play...
