For reasons I don’t need to explain, I sold my StingRay 5. It was my only bass. I still wanted a bass to thump around in my office at my house, so I bought a burgundy Epiphone Embassy.
It reminds me of my very first bass I learned on in 1976……a red Epiphone ET-280.
I don’t play in a group anymore and going back to a 4-string is all I need to keep playing my jazz standards………albeit to an audience of no one, but gives me peace and happiness.
It arrives from Sweetwater tomorrow.
So, how do I change my name to “Johnny Embassy”???

Ta Da!!! I am now Johnny Embassy! Hahaha!
Who were you? Lol.
Now I gotta know ha ha.
I was “Johnny StingRay”………
Oh lol. That why.
To cover all basses, you could be Johnny_Bass (like Johnny_Guitar, but better!).
Edited to add: I meant to type “bases,” but my subconscious took over.
John_E_Phone would be a good moniker transition as it would honor the original name and incorporate the new Epiphone nicely.
Mighty_Power_Wombat has a ring to it, or maybe FujiBat
The Embassy is here, but “leave in the box for 24 hours to acclimate to the new environment”!!!
Channeling Andy Kaufman; “Here he is to save the day! Mighty Wombat is on the way!”
Better be something bassy inside there or I will be disappointed
Dude, I woulda had that thing ripped open before you could say “Fragile.”
With all of my basses, unless the box was freezing cold to the touch, I opened it right away. Never a problem.
But…………it must be an Italian bass, so I have to wait to catch up to Italy’s time zone!!! Hahaha!
Maybe it’s just very long spaghetti in that box!
