Here’s some of my musical instrument mistakes.

This was an Ibanez bass I returned a couple years ago. It buzzed and didn’t play well. I had it set up, and it still buzzed. It was brand new and still junky. I sent it back.

I tried to buy an acoustic bass for practicing and because my teacher was offering in-person lessons to players of acoustic instruments. This weird-looking thing is a Traveler bass. It was horrible to play and it wasn’t an acoustic (although it was advertised as having a great acoustic sound). It got sent back.

This was a better made, actual acoustic bass guitar. A Guild Jumbo Junior. I didn’t like this one either, and I decided an acoustic bass was not for me. This one got returned, too.

I also tried a five string bass. This was a used Yamaha RBX775. It was described as being in excellent condition. When it arrived, it had what looked like moldy spots on the tuning pegs, and it was very dusty. It looked like it hadn’t been well cared for. It also had a loose selector switch on it. I didn’t like it enough to have it set up and repaired. It went back, too.

They’re not all winners.

    1. I have the 304. I waited for months for it to come in. I love it. I have it in mist green. It’s awesome but not very portable. I bought a hard shell case for it and struggle to move it from one room to another. I won’t be taking it anywhere. I used to take my other basses in to work with me on my guitar lesson days since I didn’t have time to run home first. It’s a hike from the parking garage to the office. My Schecters in their padded gig bags went over my shoulder. The Yamaha in its hard case won’t be getting carried around that way. I’m not flexible or strong enough at my age.
