Missed 2, got 1

Post  ack on Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:35 pm

This past week, I was outbid on a natural T-20 on eBay (I think it went for $135 + shipping) as well as a "project" (bad refinish) Patriot that went for $80.
I would have pulled the trigger on the Patriot, but the owner said that there was no serial # on the headstock.

I did, however, pick up a '86 Foundation locally that was in real rough shape.
Got it cleaned up, de-rusted and restrung and it is as good as everyone says they are. These Super Ferrites are terrific.

and after some TLC:



I got my eye on a mid-'80's Mahogany Patriot - hopefully, I can pull the trigger in a few weeks for that one.

Yes!
As the Foundation is better than Fender Jazz, the Patriot does the P-bass and beyond.

If you like a thicker but comfortable B neck P the Patriot is it.

Since I got the Foundation all fixed up, it has changed my mind about getting a T-20 (for now).

I've also fallen in love with my '89 Fury so much that I've given my Fender P-bass to my brother. The Fender P is a real, real nice bass, but the Fury is just a better P-bass for me. I'm not so sure I want or need a Patriot anymore. I'm pretty happy right now.
