    Current Setup:
    SUB SB4 by Sterling - My daily player. I found this one used and after putting some GHS Pressure Wounds on it and swapping the stock pickup for a Guitar Fetish alnico, it is one of the most comfortable and punchy basses I have ever owned.
    Update: I now have three of these and find them to be a great, inexpensive modding platform. I recently swapped out the MM pickup on one with an EMG P-bass pickup in the Fender sweet spot. I now have one with Pressure Wounds, one with round wounds and one with Flats

    Steinberger L2 - Ive had it since the 80s' but it's such a classic I can't even think of selling it. It still turns a lot of heads when I take it to a gig as well as generating a lot of "How do you tune it?" inquiries.

    Two Hartke Kickback 15's - I've modified each one to be a separate amp and speaker cab. I run these amps together to make a cool little 2x15 stack. Obviously, I am not afraid to modify just about every piece of gear that I own - it's not just a hobby, it's a curse!

    A Hartke Kickback 12 - Yes, I modified its one as well. All three of my Hartke amps have the same head so I always have a spare in case of a failure. Special note: after eight years of gigging these amps, I haven't had one failure yet - Thanks Hartke!

    Fender Rumble 100 v3 - I am completely amazed by the sound and tone this thing puts out. Almost as impressive as the volume this tiny amp can produce is it's feather weight. It really feels like Fender forgot to put anything in the box!
    Favorite Genres:
    Classic, Modern and Progressive Rock
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Currently singing and playing in 5 groups in the Seattle area: The Davanos - classic rock, blues, country and original music, Killer Rabbit - classic and modern rock, Nomad - power rock, Shake It Up - a tribute to The Cars and The Jethro Tull Experience - a Tull tribute band. All these groups can be found on YouTube under the band names or mine - Greg Youtsey.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I've been playing since 1963 and have owned over 60 basses (Vox, Fender, Steinberger, Ibanez, Gibson, Spector, Ampeg, Crucianelli, Rickenbacker, Vantage, Sterling, Hamer, OLP, Squier, Warwick and Yamaha) and 20 different amps (Silvertone, Vox, Fender, Hartke, Ampeg, Acoustic, Sunn, Marshall, AMP, GK, Peavey and Yamaha). I find it funny and a little sad that I owned a LOT of now-classic equipment when it was brand new.
    G.A.S. List:
    A huge-sounding small amp (damn those laws of physics) and a comfortable, lightweight bass with great, classic tone. I'm actually very close to that with my current rig though...
    Influences and Teachers:
    Paul McCartney, Chris Squire, Dave Hope and Andy Fraser were some of my influences in the past but there are some amazing young bassists now doing things that blow me away. I'm really impressed with Henrik Linder of Dirty Loops, an ultra-tight Swedish group with incredible vocals and musicianship.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Singer/Bass Player, Emmy Award winning Composer and Sound Engineer
