    Home Page:
    United States - West Virginia
    Current Setup:
    Nash 1957 Precision Bass replica with Light Relic finish (made in 2007); 1987 MusicMan Stringray; Old Fender Jazz Bass; 1973 Fender Precision Bass with aftermarket fretless neck; Epiphone Thunderbird IV; Ampeg STV-350 solid state head; SWR Goliath Sr cabinet (6x10" speakers); Polytone Miny Teeney Brute combo; Ampeg B15N from the 1970s; Trace Elliot 130 watt combo; Tech 21 SansAmp; Tech 21 Bass Compactor; Boss tuner pedal; Boss chorus pedal.
    Favorite Genres:
    I like any music that has a great bass line.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Classic rock cover band; 3-piece group that does 95% original music (kinda folksy stuff), and a 5 piece jazz combo that does straight-ahead jazz, ballroom dance gigs and some pop songs from the 1960s to 1980s.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I've never been one to sell gear that I like. Anything that I've sold during my 30 plus years of bass playing has been because it wasn't working for me.
    G.A.S. List:
    I wish I would have bought that early 1970s Fender Precision Bass for $500 at a music store several years ago. It was one of the most comfortable, nicest sounding, broke-in basses I've played. But you live and learn. I recently bought a Nash P-Bass relic and its as nice as the one I passed on, but it cost over 3 times the price!
    Influences and Teachers:
    #1 is Stanley Sheldon (bassist on Frampton Comes Alive), #2 is Joe Byrd (jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd's bass-playing brother .. as a youngster I couldn't play Charlie's licks on this records, but I COULD play Joe's bass lines .... that and breaking the G and high E srings on my guitar led me to play bass).
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Bicycle riding; collect AM tube radios
