    Cool guys, thanks.

    BTW, how much of NV43345 can you actually play? I can play maybe half of it at about half speed, that is such a hard solo. Billy Sheehan is the man.

    Nice bass dude. You must be a huge Sheehan fan to have the Attitude bass. At least you dont have the one piece pink strap too, hehe.

    I assume you have the same book I do if you can play that. The Cherry Lane "The Talas Years" book. He doesn't actually bend the neck to make the strings do that. Look on page 26, bottom right. It says quote "Slowly detune string with tuning peg, allowing string to slap against pickup." I guess now you can play the ending too :)

    I hate to mess with the tuner so I "do" bend the neck, with the Hipshot on the "D" position the string is flappy enough to make that weird clicky noise, I dont have to bend it that much. It has a pretty tough neck joint. As far as Billy, I have met him, and he is so nice in person, look above my ABG, in this pic, you can see a autographed
    flier from a local in store he did.I do have that book as well as Mr.Big and mr.Big lean into it
    books as well as his 2 videos. I love playing "just take my heart" on my six string bass. I have not heard any of his Niacin material yet.

    Stewart MacDonald (stewmac.com) carries two varieties in chrome. And I think Warmoth might, not sure.
