This Fender Jazz bass with the orange sunburst was my dream instrument. 20 years ago dad bought it for me for my birthday. I remember playing a show in Birmingham at Big Dan's Fantastic Planet with Indecision and Walls of Jericho. Dad drove up from Montgomery for the show. I can still see the huge grin on his face as he stood in the back in khaki shorts, golf shirt and Sperry's as the pit broke out around him. I can't imagine what he thought and he certainly couldn't have understood at the time, but he never made me feel like he wasn't extremely proud of me. The bass has been all over the country with me playing music. I sweat and bled on it every night. The bridge, the electronics, pickups and hardware on it are all shot but I am going to personally restore it back to its former glory. It will always be one of my most prized possessions.
