    Here's a video I just put up on youtube, of my new 1966 Guild Starfire Hollowbody :smug:

    Playing part of Jaco's Continuum.



    Let me know what you think, and enjoy! :)

    That's nice.:) It's definitely not what I would have expected from a Starfire.

    Awesome bass. Ive always like hollowbody's but I havent picked on up yet. Where did you learn Continuum? Tab? If you learned it off a tab could you point me in the direction where you got it. Same if you got it from sheet music.

    I learned it by ear. Pretty much how I learn everything now.

    I record direct through a DI, into my M-Audio Delta 66 soundcard. Works great! What you hear is the pure tone of the bass that's being recorded :)

    I run everything through a mixer too, but that isn't affecting the tone. Here's my studio setup:

    DSCN0850000000.

    DSCN0860000000.

    Accidentally had it covered up in that pic, but it's a Klark Tekink DI. I don't know what the specific model name is (if there is one), but it sounds great!
