    Ant,

    How many basses did you carry with you while touring with Victor? How many time did you spend playing different basses besides the Fodera that you normally play?

    I normally tour with 2 basses. I refer to them as 'plug 1' and 'plug 2'. My #1 is a Fodera Imperial with a chestnut top. My #2 is a Fodera Imperial with a Yin/Yang top.

    But I'll bring various other bases out for fun. Or I'll buy basses while I'm on the road.

    I'm having a custom made 5 string Rickenbacker clone made. It's gonna' be fun.

    peace,
    anthony

    Yea,...standard spacing, 35" scale. Seymour Duncan dual coils. It'll be my sound but a Ric look.

    I know its not your style to post videos of yourself, but is there anyway you can post a video with your Custom Ying Yang 6 string?

    Yea Jim, #1 and 2 are on left of that picture on my website and Facebook page.

    My #1 fits me better than any article of clothing I own.

    When she's in my hands everything is right in my world!

    Please note that this is an "Exhibition" instrument, other wise, I'd probably get sued and/or chewed out by Ric enthusiasts.......

    I will not build this bass again.
