Earlier this week I walked into my local music store, and played most of the basses there, including an oddball that I originally thought was a Carl Thompson, until I saw a bolt-on neck. I asked the owner, and he told me it was a Drake. Now, I've never heard of Drake basses, but I picked it up and played it a bit. It sounded pretty sweet, with simple controls, and a relatively no frills aesthetic. I like it. It had a pretty slim neck, with great fretwork, and a very nice Gaboon Ebony fretboard. I did some searching on TB, but not really much info. Anybody else played these wonderful basses?
