Price: anything from £0-£950 I'm currently playing in an prog-rock band and an indie band. Currently playing a Jim Deacon (SX) P-bass through an Ashdown 300 MAG evo II. Been playing 1.5 years. Genres: Blues, jazz, funk, classic rock, ____core, prog. Main bass playing influences, in no particular order: Tim Commerford John Gallant Roger Waters JPJ Jack Bruce Justin Chancellor Noel Redding Flea Hope I gave enough details.
