    So, back in rehearsal studios (17 years since the last time for me) with 3 other guys. One plays acoustic - and has been doing open mics/charity gigs for a couple of years now, another 'tries' on the drums another and myself on guitars (me mainly doing slide stuff) ... all 60's Rock/RnB/Blues.

    There's supposed to be a Bass man too ... no show the last two weeks! So - and have I done the right thing here? - got myself a Squier Jaguar (short scale) Bass to fill in on until a real bass player turns up.
    £183 here new, I certainly didn't see any point paying a packet for it and know I wouldn't manage a used 34" at a similar price.

    Obviously, all I'll be doing is thump-thump type rhythms but at least there'll (hopefully) be a sense of beat/timing going on - plus, I can use it at home with backing tracks for practice etc.

    Only had a few hours but, through a Bass modelling unit, I quite like the pickups, but the PB one is far superior to the Jazz one imho. However, I may well have a look at the wiring inside later, already suspect a loose volume connection for the PB pickup.

    Here's the obligatory pic - colour is CAR ... so it sits nicely with the CCR Strat and Fiesta Red Tele :)
