Back in. Again. At least temporarily.

Just traded my Lakie HB w/Chi's for a mojoed '84 L2k with maple board. Deal is if either one of us doesn't like the bass we receive, we send the basses back to each other.

Should be here Thursday. Pics when I get a chance.

Actually...I do!! Quite a bit. One of those "DOH! WHy did I sell it??" basses.

And dibs noted, Tookay.

Did I mention "temporarily"???

Cool-a** basss. Sounds quite huge. TONS of cool mojo. This one's been played! But it's a little too heavy for me and also just enough of a neck diver that after about 45-50 minutes of playing time on it, my old-man back was killing me. It's just that much heavier than my Lakie Scheff to be a problem.

Anyhooooo, the guy I traded with seems super nice. As it stands I'm going to sent the L2k back and make him a nice cash deal on my Lakie HB.

Yes, I'll lose shipping and yes, I'm a finnicky gear slut and yes, I've got the attention span of a flea on ritalin. Tell me something I don't know.

**SIGH** The search for a worthy #2 bass continues......

So does anybody know where The Swinger went? I vaguely remember somebody posting that it was going to be refinished....
Ah, those mysterious, mystical bass legends....like King Arthur's Excalibur....

Jaco's Bass of Doom.....
Jamerson's Funk Machine.....
Mr. Mom's Swinger......

Just saw your other post about trying to find the Swinger...hope there's a happy ending to that.
In the meantime, I'm hugging my '83 L2K a little more closely.

I better go get some more popcorn....

Oh, I'm not looking to buy it back. Just curious. Truth be told, it'd prolly be a tad heavy for me.

But man, the tone on that thing was stellar. Same with the neck: Stellar.

I did PM shamus63 but he has not been on BABP for quite some time. Oh well.....

I see him pretty regularly as he sits in with the band, but he's never mentioned The Swinger FWIW.

There are some light ones around. You just have to look around. Both my L2000 and my El Toro are under 9 lbs.

Pete, if you think about it when you see him next, do me a solid and ask him about it. Maybe it's not him?
