    The only ones I know are LaMarquis Jefferson (acomplished Atlanta studio musician and producer) and Adrian Garcia, acomplished Las Vegas (and South Florida) bassist extraordinaire, besides the guys at the Pro's forum.

    But famous, famous, like. . . oh, Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes) stops by once in a while.
