Yup. Max’s room is definitely getting too small. As you can see in the corner, he acquired a new Bass over the weekend! His room is so small I couldn’t stand back any further to get it all in the picture! In fact, I was standing in the hall, leaning around the corner to get that one!
He found this 3/4 size bass (believe it or not, it is NOT full sized—the body is a little narrower and the neck isn’t as long or wide) for just the right price, which included the carrying bag. He had saved all but$15 of the price, so I scraped up the last bit for him. Because he paid in cash, the owner gave it to him as if without the tax. It sounds almost as big as a full sized one---pros use them as practice basses because they are easier to lug around. This one is a big larger than the usual 3/4 sized one. Here is a comparison of a full sized one (the red one) and his new one:
So, he is in 7th heaven now with his own upright (which he can bow too!). Will let you know what name he decided to bestow upon it (the red one which belongs to the school, I understand, is named “Rosie”). What would YOU name it???
