    Thanks!

    I aquired them all because they each "bring somthing different to the table". Since that photo was taken, I've added a nice SR4, an OLP Tony Levin Sig, and a really cool MIM P Bass that I did the Jamerson treatment on (flats, bridge ashtray with foam).

    However, I would have to say the Ripper is my sentimental favorite. Back in the day, I played a ton of gigs and made a nice living with that bass. I also met my wife while I was playing it!! It still suprises me how, after all these years, how great it sounds and plays.

    Funkengrooven Turn it down? You gotta be nuts!!

    Here is my 1966 Epiphone Rivoli, The first REAL bass I ever owned
    I tracked down the guy I sold it to and he GAVE it back.
    Nice Guy Eh??
    Besides, we have been friends for better than 25 years, that probably helped.
    The Extra routing in the body (a nasty P-Bass pickup hole) that is covered by the black plastic plate, was done by the previous owner and I made it worse...When I was young and stupid...By adding the Baby Humbucker.
    It will soon to be covered with a piece of Gabon Ebony Thoughtfully supplied by Dave Pusic of DP Custom Guitars.

    My friend has a goth T bird, he really likes it.
    Personally I think they are muddy, but since hes playing it though a big guitar amp its not got as much low end so its not muddy
