The Story:
I have very little memory of this bass. It was definitely one of Kat’s, and I think we got it because it was cheap (I think it was around $200 or $250), light and — the biggest factor — metallic blue. It was certainly well made for the money and fun to play, but Kat doesn’t like rosewood necks, and it clearly didn’t have anything special that would cause us to keep it. I vaguely think we sold it on eBay, but might have traded it in toward something else…or maybe the consignment shop? Seriously, I just don’t remember.
