    This is fingers.... Not amp. Not bass. Not strings. Just good old fashioned muscular technique.

    I once had him in front of me in a music shop.
    He picked up a standard Jazz and plugged into a GK half stack. It sounded like it was compressed and super active, tight and perfectly levelled. All in his fingers.
