Hello! My first post on here. A little about me. I've been playing the bass for a little more than a decade. Basically, I play for a worship team at a church, but every now and then I get to play for other thigns, such as tonight when I play for a banquet. Two hours of jazz, filling in for a guy that usually plays for this group. It's going to be fun. I'll make the most of it. Talk about improv night! Anyway, I guess my greatest 'bass' moment was when I created a 'from scratch' 5 string fretless bass. The link to the site is: http://www.geocities.com/orion_vtol/Music.html?985795550890 My regular bass is a Peavey Accelorator. Purple body with a pearloid pickguard. Only bought it because I was needing my own bass a long time ago, didn't have a lot of money, and the Peavey was on sale for half off. Anyway, I was planning on making a new body for the Peavey, so I bought a piece of Birdseye Maple and started to work on it. My brother said that he liked the way the Peavey looked and suggested I make a whole new bass. Well, it's a long story from that point on [two years of off and on work]. Anyway, after completion, I took the new fretless bass to a music shop to have the electronics hooked up, and afterwards the guy said that it was better looking and sounding then some of the basses he had on the wall. A real compliment. Well, enough about that. I'm glad I found this forum.
