    2014 Fender AVRI '63 Precision
    3-color sunburst, tort guard w/ both covers, old TI flats, and handmade FOAM mute ...total Funk Machine! (Changed out the stock P/U for a Fender Original '62, much mo' mellow and funky.)

    1955 King Mortone 1/2 size stand up (older than me, and in much better shape)

    Cabs:

    GK MB800

    Pedals:

    Empress Compressor (always on, 2:1 just a wee bit o' comp to even things out)
    Boss OC-2 Octave (For "Rocky Mountain Way" and occasional thickening, or if I want to show off)
    Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter (for "Stanglehold" only, and when I run out of limited lead ideas)

    Sans Amp BDDI

    Stringz'n Thingz:

    Influences and Teachers:

    Hobbies and Interests:
    Music's it! Oh yeah, girls, and movies. That's it, except for In-N-Out and zoos and baseball (love me some Dodger baseball!) ...and this thermos.
    I hate playing with knuckleheads. I moved to Austin from Cali 15 years ago and have played with some very fine and dandy players. Only once in a while do I get stuck with a "son-of-knuck".

    Sometimes I'M the "knuck" and I try to learn from it so I won't repeat it. Lessons still being learnt.
