  1. Think the stand was to the side, and I'd moved the bass to let the percussionist outta his box :smug:

    Poudah has an African Rosewood. It was an experiment at the time. It’s more of a chocolatey sort of red color. He only had enough of the African rosewood for three bases I got one, John Taylor from Duran Duran got one and there is one other jazz bass somewhere that has it. It might be a little bit more mid than DN. But not as bright as Ebony. And for some reason the bass just has a natural Growl.
    I didn’t think that I was going to like it but it has become something quite unique that I never want to put down. It has traveled all over the world and has the battle scars to prove it

    I have suggested a few mods and changes for this pedal since it is still in the Proto type stage. It sounded great at the Nam show. FET45 Could be very cool and unique

    Yeah, love it when Jimmy makes a “vintage tint” headstock.

    Thanks for the clarification regarding Poudah, I was never quite sure about the board. :thumbsup:

    Just for the fun of it I need to take a few more pictures of it this week. I can’t believe how much paint is missing off it now. I was on a road trip and the gear wasn’t Canada and sat in the truck for three days. Last winter. Now I have all checking And it’s quite beautiful actually. None of the wear and tear is fake or phony it’s all real. With the exception of the dogs names carved in the back. Including Jimmy’s dog Ceasar that passed away

  11. Hi all. Apologies if this has been answered but is there a web page I can go to for more information about the models and dealers of AC basses? It looks like the web site is down so I just wanted to get an idea of the differences between Jimmy's builds and if there are any dealers in New York City since I will be there this weekend. Thanks.

  13. Thanks Mitch! By the way, you were amazing at the Bergantino booth at NAMM. My friend Lee was working the booth so I got to see and hear your playing there and was blown away.
