    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Wild Sage Records, Nashville recording artist Natalie Logan
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Ken Smith Melvin Davis 7 (What in the hell was I thinking? I blame it on my youth (at the time), being too free n' loose with my money, and listening to way too much jazz-fusion at the time.

    Yamaha John Pattitucci Signature 6 (Yup. Yet again..... What the hell? I was in a hard rock band, for Christ's sake!)

    70's Gibson Grabber, a natural-colored, all maple beast. Who else? Gene $immons!

    Pre-CBS Fender P-Bass I don't know exact year. At 12 years-old, I was too damn young to care. Needless to say, I'd like to have it back. My dumb ass probably traded it for a BC Rich, or something pointy/weapon-shaped....... Ahh, the 80's.

    80's Alembic Spoiler (Short-scale basses ain't for me. I'm 6'5" 240lbs., so they make me look even more big n' goofy than I already am.....)

    Ibanez SR800 (A nice-playing bass, in that horrendous BRIGHT blue color. Hey, what can I say? It was the 80's.......)

    80's Fender USA Bullet Bass (34" scale). I had defretted this bass with a kitchen knife, and ended up trading it, a post-dated check for $75, and a half ounce of some really nasty shwag for my '61 Jazz Bass. Which, looking back, is quite possibly the best deal ever for a bass. I STILL get chills when I think about it. Haha.

    A couple more of the mid-80's Fender Jazz Bass Specials, here & there, back in the late 80's. I simplified, and thinned the herd down to just 2 of 'em. Those are actually some of the best players I've ever had. Great examples of Japanese craftsmanship.

    Really nothing more of any significance.

    As long as I've been playing/gigging, I haven't owned a whole lot of gear. Gear has sorta been like a tattoo to me. It's with you for life.
