    Current Setup:
    - '08 Schecter 004, strung w/Ken Smith Rock Masters (all the goodness of Roto 66's, but these last longer than 20 minutes)

    - '08 Schecter Stiletto Extreme 4 modded (custom bone nut, Bartolini TBT preamp, more to come) strung w/GHS Pressurewounds

    - '07 Squier VM Precision Bass TB (aka; the Telecaster bass) modded (rewired parallel w/CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, Badass III bridge, more to come) strung with Smiths again

    - Rig 1; bass > Korg DT-10BK > Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso > Trace Elliott SMX Dual Compressor > etched/re-housed Fuzzrocious Grey Stache #87> kid-painted Fuzzrocious Kaeden OD #2 > plain-box Fuzzrocious BDPG #71 > Line 6 M5 w/Ernie Ball VP Jr 25k as an expression pedal (pedals mounted on PT Jr., powered by 1Spot) > '94 Trace Elliot AH130SM > Dr Bass 1260/Dr Bass 115LF *

    *both purchased used from the class-ads here, btw...which is the only way I'd recommend buying his cabs these days, unfortunately.

    -----------

    - Rig 2; bass > Planet Waves tuner > BBE Opto Stomp > Catalinbread Hyper Pak #76 > Tronographic Rusty Box (pedals mounted on PT Mini, powered by 1Spot)> Epiphone Valve Junior head (re-tubed) > Markbass Traveler 102P (all sitting on an On-Stage amp stand)

    -------------

    - Elixir, Monster and custom Mogami cables

    ...and I keep the picks that I rarely use in an Altoids tin that has Curious George on the cover...honest, wanna see?

    G.A.S. List:
    BASSES - there are a number of basses that I'd like to own, but if I had the following I'd never GAS for another instrument. Ever.

    - Ovation Magnum I; the bass I wanted when I was in college
    - Kawaii FIIB; closest I'll ever get to an Alembic
    - some version of a Musicman Stingray
    - Rickenbacker 4001, preferably fireglo
    - Rickenbacker 4002; as much chance for this as I do for a Trace V8, but I can dream...

    AMPS/CABS -
    - Hiwatt 200 head
    - Trace Elliot V-8 (...yeah, like it will happen...but still...)
    - Trace Elliott V-somethingsomething (...MUCH more probable than the V8)
    - I wouldn't turn down a Traynor head
    - I'd like to start picking up Trace cabs as I can afford them and become available
