Charles Shipman

Male, 63, from Michigan, USA

Sidetracked with too many guitar and bass projects to actually play one. Terribly disappointing and bordering on sickness. Shocked. Aug 17, 2017

      Modifying my SX lefty 6 with Duncan tone circuit gave that one real tone. Now I get to correct my mistake to wire volume pot into the mix!

      Recording at home, and glad I do not play out anymore. Once I had the taste of a house band gig with NO equipment to move, all was over.
