My 15yr Old Sons New Bass Rig- Ibanez SR650PB - Hartke Power

So my oldest son took up the Bass a few months back. He's getting pretty decent for a beginner. Seems to have a natural talent for the Bass. Got him in lessons so it was now time to buy him a decent setup.

The poplar burl finish is way cool. The rig sounds damn good too. I had a luthier adjust the neck and bridge, put new strings on and it now plays fast and smooth.

Hell of a rig for a kids first one.....

So my sons have formed a band. ( bass player noted above and the drummer with his Alesis DM10X kit ) With a little practice they decided to go out and perform live for the first time at a local coffee shop open mic night. Here are two videos of that night last week.

Drummer is 12yrs and the other two guys are 15yrs old. They have only practiced all together 5 nights or so before they decided to try it out in public. Who knows what another year or two will bring for these young jammers.
