    I got triple shocked when I saw these news in the Cort website:

    1- Jeff Berlin switched from Dean to Cort guitars!
    2- His new bass doesn't have the expected Badass bridge!!
    and
    3- HE SHAVED HIS TRADEMARK MOUSTACHE!!! :eek:

    The end of the world is near! REPENT!!!
    . . . . . . .
    In the other hand, he still specified Bartolini pickups, so that's reassuring.

    All of a sudden he doesn't look like he stepped out of 1983.

    I think he looked better with the cookie duster. Some mustaches are iconic, I just cannot look at Alex Trebek the same

    Maybe he's trying to get some females in his audience!

    Have you seen his recent players school series lessons on YouTube? They are great. Really great. He did a chord tone lesson which was amazing.

    He seems much more mellow now too. Still has strong beliefs and backs them up well but they are tapered with more understanding.

    I like what he is doing.

    I hope by 2023 I can sound like he did in 1983!

    The bass looks good.
    But I understand Jeff lost his mustache in a metronome accident.

    It's not a Fender moustache that's for sure.

    Anyway, looking at his bass he seems to be suffering from severe nose bleeds.

    He recently got married I believe. That could have something to do with it.

    I've always admired Jeff. Would love to go down and attend the "one week intensive" he offers every year.

    He's no longer affiliated with the school, although he does still encourage people to attend.

    I went a couple of years ago. It wasn't their usual one week intensive. I called the school and Vicki said she could fit me in whenever it was conveient for me. It happened to be a slow time of the year as the long term students were justy finishing up their semester, so I was the only one-weeker. I got a lot of one-on-one with Jeff and Matt Bokulic, his theory instructor. Very encouraging and patient, and were also just cool to hang out with.

    He cut a good ten years off his shoulders. Nonetheless his attire still smells so '80....

    I wonder what the owner of the ultimate iconic mustache would say about this. In other words, I want to see a "Hitler reacts to Jeff Berlin shaving off his mustache" video.

    Baby steps, baby steps...

    With a bit of tweaking he could pull off that Joe Bonamassa look.
