    Garrett Sayers, bassist from one of my favorite bands, The Motet, has started his own project. Anyone know what type of bass he is playing, maybe a noob question, but it looks like a comfortable, playable tone monster.

    Oops, you're right--I only looked at the first few seconds of video, and it looked like two soapbars, but later on it clearly shows the J/MM setup. Thanks for the correction!

    I am doing this same trio in my band "Groovacious". Very similar sound. Nothing is original anymore. Oh well, I'll just keep on plucking those strings anyway.
