    Current Setup:
    Gear ready to roll...

    • '13 Squier VM Jazz Bass w/GHS light flats, otherwise stock

    • Mesa/Boogie Walkabout12

    • SWR Headlite



    Gear needing some TLC...

    •'03 Music Man Stingray (electronics has become VERY noisy)

    •Yorkville XM400 (needs rebuild now due to idiot bandmate)
    Favorite Genres:
    Blues, Motown, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal. Never cared for listening to it much but country is fun to play. 90+% of jazz continues to elude me lol.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    The A-Holes, Capo
    Previously Owned Gear:
    •"Cozart" knockoff US$70 P-bass (known as "the plank" cause the neck was super fat, kinda wish I still had it now)

    •Yorkville XS50 (sounded kind of dull but it was my first amp with the above P with cheapie electronics)

    •Fender Bassman 25 (surprisingly good for a tiny amp & better than the Yorkville)

    •Ibanez SR300 (spongewood special that every damn fastener stripped or came lose in, good player, no tone)

    •Traynor YBA200-1 w/TX1510 Cab that I should never had sold but divorce happens lol
    G.A.S. List:
    •First and formost, the most economical way to get a decent P-Bass. Looking at one of the new Fender American Professionals in white but I'd love to get something along the lines of a Fender '57 Reissue however I'm left handed and there's very little lefty love at Fender. It's very hard to find a maple boarded lefty P that doesn't break the bank. The Squier VM Jazz I have is the only maple boarded Squier or Fender I've seen produced new since I started playing bass in 2004 and they just ceased production on that one so it's a good thing that I got it when I did lol.

    •Some nice 4 ohm speaker cabs. One 1x10" (ie BareFaced One 10, Eden EX110 or TN110 for home and smaller situations, iow most of the time), and one 2 or 4 speaker cab for jams and gigs (looking at Eden EX410 & EX410SC4 cabs) - open to suggestions/recommendations

    •A compressor - once again open for feedback

    •MXR Bass Fuzz/OD

    •Another big tube amp like a Mesa 400, Ampeg SVT or Traynor YBA200/300. Maybe a Fender T-100.

    •Silly aspirations of a fretless and eventually, an upright.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Influences? Hmmm, Lemmy, John Entwistle, Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, Cliff Burton, Flea, Victor Wooten, Tommy Shannon.

    Studied with? Not exactly an educated musician lol.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Guitar, drums, choppers, electronics, history.
