If an instrument has a story, surely it would tell.  Yes, friends, don't you wish they could tell  (the instrument that is.)  All the hopes and aspirations of their previous owners and the gigs they played together.

Well, I got a surprise for you all today.  Yes, the fingers that played "Bad Finger" set-list is the Zapruder  film we all crave for.  Buying an instrument always makes me think of the previous owner.

As you can see, the prior owner was well versed,  or was it the guitarist that wrote all the notes down in-which the songs primary key started in?  We can surmise one or two things here from the evidence.
A.)  The bass player in this case,  "Todd" A.K.A "Toddy,"  was keen to the idea of jamming to the classics.  From Bad Finger to Dylan all the way to the top with Hendrix, this boy loved him some rock music.

B.)  Because the key's are written plainly for all to see, we can surmise that "Toddy" either had little time to rehearse or he liked sparkin' it up with Buddha.

C.)  For the mere fact that in the song title for 1984 ( Van Halen,  I suppose) on the paper it say's "Nice Bass Lines." Now, does that sound like a guitarist trying to give some enthusiasm to a slack bass player or what?

D.)  And lastly, the wild card, the mystery man and the one that was discovered with the knife in hand with Colonel Mustard in the study.  Who in the blue blazing is "Ya-hoo?"

Do you think that's secret squirrel language  for "who's gonna bring Betty White?" People, you know they (heads, that is) have secret language for their drug of choice.  Betty in this reference would be Coke.

People, it boggles my mind thinking of such, but as for this bass?
You kids know, I do nothing but "excellence" now don't you?
That means, this bass is original, clean and with original swag right?

But of course it does.  Now listen, if you want a great playin/ vibey bass and you don't have 15K for a custom color what have you, then please consider this.

As R.E.O and the set-list suggest. "I know it hurts to say goodbye, but it's time for me to fly."  And to spark it up with "Toddy," of course.
