Really dumb question


Recommended Posts

I purchased a Yamaha BB414 about 3 months ago. I love the bass...great bass...orange...very cool, but I bought it online and I have no idea how to tell people what I have and don't want to expose my lack of smarts. So...is it a BB "four-one-four" or "four-forteen". See, I told you it was a really dumb question.

I gather you are very young. Here's the answer: Who cares? Seriously...how would you say the number if it wasn't in the model name of a bass? That's a nice bass...hone your skills on it and your playing will speak for itself.


Welcome, btw.



Old bass players never die, they just buy lighter rigs.

You may want to work on your gathering skills before winter comes.


I am actually a licensed professional who decided to pick up a bass about 3 years ago after an aborted attempt to play for about a year in college. Funny how things work. My doofus friends and I now have a major label record deal and are currently developing a TV series for a national network. In addition, I am a voting member of the Academy of Recording Artists. Up for a Grammy? Let me know and I will do what I can.


I did all of this playing an Aria Pro II, a Washburn 100(?) I spray painted orange myself and a borrowed, beat-up Mexican made Fender Precision. I believe the only way to get the first two is with the highly respected, professional starter pack complete with amp and instructional booklet. I lost all my gear (along with everything else I had that does not breath) in the big storm of 2006. Most of what has happened has come since the storm. Am I boasting? Sure I am. But I also think it is somewhat inspriational on a variety of levels. So...no, I am not young. I am actually a battle tested veteran of life who just wants to know how the hell I refer to my new bass. Sometimes the littlest thing just eat at you.


Thank you Cleveland....GOODNIGHT!!
