    Long Time No Bass

    Hey all, I have recently felt the bug to start playing again after about a 7 year hiatus. I currently find myself looking to obtain a new bass. I used to have a really sweet Ball Family Reserve Sterling, that I purchased from an online retailer about 8 years ago. It wasn't Bass Central. Their slogan was something like the bass you see is the bass you get. I know one of the salesmen there was a regular poster on here back then, as was I, but I cannot remember the site. Can any of you old timers help? Thanks

    I think you are talking about The Perfect Bass - Louisiana. Unfortunately they are no longer in business.

    I'm a left hander who plays right handed, so I guess that makes me confused.

    Thanks for the responses. It was The Perfect Bass. I am not sure what I want to get. I have had at one time or another every style of Music Man excluding the Big Al and the Game Changer. I need something that is relatively light due to back issues, so at this point I am leaning towards another Sterling. I have been out of the game for awhile so I am just now starting to look around. I have always landed on a Music Man, but I am not 100% sure what I want yet.

    Sterlings are light and you know what....The capri and cutlass basses are also pretty lightweight. If you have a bad back, I would stay away from the Sabres.

    Good luck in your search.
