    Current Setup:
    Fender American Standard Jazz (2014)
    Fender 62 AVRI Precision
    Fender Fretless Jazz (Jaco model)
    Universal Audio LA-610 (for recording)
    Hartke Kickback (for live / practicing)

    I tend to oscillate between strings depending on my mood, but really enjoy TI flats, several DR strings, and most everything I've tried from GHS and Labella.
    Favorite Genres:
    Jazz, gospel, 60s/70s rock/popular, baroque classical
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Local church band, sundry studio efforts
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Yamaha BBN5
    Yamaha TRB1005
    Some fretless Yamaha Precision-bass clone whose model name I forget but was never able to find documentation about anyway

    I basically swapped out Yamaha for Fender after years of not getting the sound I wanted. In retrospect I probably should have tried some different pickups on the Yamahas first, but I wasn't that technically knowledgeable at the time.
    G.A.S. List:
    Feeling pretty well set with my current instruments. Would like to some day get some other basses for secondary (tertiary?) sounds.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Abraham Laboriel, Carol Kaye, Duck Dunn, Bobby Vega, Dan Towey
