    Vintage Modified PJ Precision Bass in 3-tone Sunburst
    - E Flat tuning, flatwound strings

    Vintage Modified PJ Precision Bass in Lake Placid Blue
    - E Standard tuning, roundwound strings

    Vintage Modified PJ Precision Bass in Lake Placid Blue

    Various bands since 1986.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    4 STRING BASSES: Ric 4001S and 4003S, Peavey Palladium, MIJ P, MIM Ps, "Parts" P/Js, MIJ Squier custom J/P/J, Squier Classic Vibe P, SX Ps, Ibanez Blazer, Aria Pro II P/J, Kramer DMZ5000, Cort J, SX Js. I'm sure that there's others I've forgotten to add to this list.

    5 STRING BASSES: had only a few of these, didn't stick with them....Cort 5 string with dual humbuckers, Fender 5 string J, SX 5 string J.

    COMBO AMPS: Ampeg B100R, dual Behringer BXL3000s + BDI21 Vtone preamp, Peavey DataBass

    G.A.S. List:
    Sure, I would love to own American Pro Fenders, Laklands, Sadowskys, Vintage Fender Bassmen and Ampeg SVT Classic Stacks... and a truck to move them all with. But that's unlikely to happen anytime soon, so I use what I have.
