    Previously Owned Gear:
    Old Gallien-Krueger head (I don't remember the model number but had it on the road for years and it always worked. Now why did I dump this?)

    1964 Fender Jazz bass in mint green with mint green headstock. Sold this too! Need my head examined.

    Couple of Fender blonde Bassman amps with 2 = 12's.

    S. D. Curlee bass. Great bass! Gone like the wind.

    Ampeg B-15, 1960's? Stock with flip top.

    1971 Fender Fretless Precision Bass.
    G.A.S. List:
    I wish I had the strength to carry a giant speaker cabinet for clean volume at larger gigs. But small is the name of the game now.
    Influences and Teachers:
    I only play fretless bass and Freebo, Bonnie Raitt's old bass player was the reason I was drawn to fretless. I had one made from a Fender Jazz bass by a master guitar builder, Sam Koontz in NJ. I then discovered that Jaco did a similar thing. So, I cannot claim that as many fretless players have that Jaco inspired me.
