    That's a Regenerate Guitar Works Regenerator 4.1, built by Rod Banach (Rodent on TB).

    AWESOME basses! Bill Clements is using one now.
     
  4. That's just all kinds of tasty.

    Well sure the internet is full of idiots. Jeff's playing is amazing, and it is presented wonderfully through the rig he is playing.

    that's a good tone for Jeff. much better than his typical very thin tone. IMHO

    excellent melodic soloing. when i want to hear a master bass soloist, he never disappoints.
     
  10. +1 That P Bass type instrument he is playing is perfect for his sound. He always lays on that big soapbar set right at the bridge in his 'signature basses', and while it is articulate as heck, it has no low end. The idea of this bass (if I have it right, basically a P Bass with a more modern neck) would be perfect for him! That type of bass with the clean but warm LMIII, and a nice fat sounding cab, and there you go!

    In the dog house.
    Didn't he violate some NAMM bass rule like "Thou shalt slap triplets"?
     
  12. No, he's cool. As long as you spend most of your time above the 12th fret, you are considered part of the gang:D

    +1. Too bad he doesn't frequent TB any more. We could help him with his tone. LOL.

    I'm pretty sure he likes his tone - thin as it seems to me - since every bass/amp/cab I hear him play thru (except this last one) seems to have the same vibe going on. It must be the sound in his head.

    It does work for his soloing - as you state, it's very articulate and clean.
     
  14. +1 Unusual to hear him playing a fat as heck P Bass!

    IMO he's playing too many notes. My ol' ear'oles can't keep up! :)
     
  16. That's our Jeff. Always ''smoke 'em if you got 'em'' :D
     
  17. Much better than his usual tone, IMO. Now, if he'd just put flats on that......:D
     
  18. This is fun. Kind of like that old 'dressing Barbie and Ken' fashion thing that little girls did way back in the day. We can make Jeff anything we want! The next thing you know, Jeff will have lost 30 pounds, cut the 'stash, mostly groove down low, play a P with flats through a fEARfless rig, and see the beauty in music versus just technical skill.:p




    PS Not a Jeff hater... I'd give my left you know what to have that sort of talent.... but it is kind of funny.:p

    They may be many, but at least they are all the *right* notes.

    Sadly, I just barely missed this impromptu performance. I had been upstairs and came down (on my way to the Regenerate booth) just in time to get a picture with Jeff and the Regenerate guys.
