Hai from Australia! I took a break from the bass for a few years [the guitar took my fancy] but I've developed a new-found appreciation and passion for the bottom end. Bass-wise, my pride and joy is a 1980s Japanese Fender Power Jazz Special. It's an epic name for a fairly epic bass, which is basically an active pickup combination of a Jazz and Precision bass. I have my eye on a Gallien Krueger bass amp. My favourite bands are Jethro Tull and Metallica, which is amusing considering how those two bands crossed paths in the 1980s. When I'm not playing music, I'm a photographer and writer.
