5.0 out of 5 stars Loverly Story - Really Enjoyed it, 24 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fender Bass for Britain: The History of the 1966 Slab-Bodied Precision Bass (Paperback)
Whilst this isnt a musical study-text, it probably is for bass players/collectors only. I only came across it as a suggestion from Amazon and I enjoyed reading this more than the main book I bought ! Its nice to read Barrys story which you can tell is a love affair with this particular bass - Im a Jazz bass guy normally (got loads of them) but I went and tried a slab body 73 tele bass after reading this book (which I think is based on the bass barrys discusses) and loved it so much I bought it - those tele-bass pick ups (different from Barrys) wow - they go so low - who needs a low 5 string with one of these. Anyway - lovely read about a normal guys passion and some famous/not so famous musos who shared it with him over the years amd they all got on ie no egos. Nice one Barry !
