"BooBoo" - 2014 Karl Hoyt Basses Custom BigFatBass 5: Swamp ash body, deep C neck, and passive Nordstrand P/J pickups. (http://www.hoytbasses.com/)
"Yogi" - 2012 Karl Hoyt Basses Custom 5: Zebra wood top and back, purpleheart core, with Seymour Duncan Vintage Soapbar active pickups. (http://www.hoytbasses.com/)
"Horse" - 2003 Lakland Skyline 55-01 Sunburst, and a rosewood board. The bass for when I can only bring ONE, and it's not a safe environment for BooBoo.
"Slinky" - 1996 Fender USA Deluxe Jazz 5. Trans-red, rosewood, custom defretted (with rock maple inlays) by Mike Dolan (http://www.dolanguitars.com), and a set of Lindy Fralin Jazz 5s installed by Rolland Brunet.
"Chunk" - 2009 Lake Placid blue Squier P, with pick-up cover, flatwounds, and an over-wrapped '51-P Lindy Fralin. Close your eyes, and you are there. This...bass...KILLS. Like I always say: Don't buy the decal, buy the bass stuck to the back of it!
