    I love to play bass. I have a day job because I know how hard it is to make a living off of music. I play in a couple of tribute bands as well as originals bands. Gig about 20 times a year. I really enjoy recording and take pride in my sound, which is why I buy and always have top notch gear. I collect vintage ibanez basses and love limited edition or anniversary special run basses. Love tube amps and vintage acoustic USA stuff. Not really into modern sounding instruments and rigs.
