    Hey all;

    My blonde Shen finally came in. I couldn't be happier. Ended up with hybrid strings. Really plays great and sounds wonderful. Also upgraded the bow to a nicer natural hair and wood German bow. Yes, going German. Many thanks to Pete of Pete's Bass Shop in Portland for the great set up and John Sprague for info on this new bass from Shen.

    Can't wait to get it to a Jazz jam tomorrow.

    Yeah, blonde's are more fun but remember, brunettes are who you take home to meet Mom.

    She sure plays nice and rich full sound for a ply. Sadly, she's back at Pete's for a couple days for some fingerboard tweeking. Sniff, sniff. I guess I need to practice some slab stuff anyway. Darnnit (kicking some dirt).

    I love my Shen, but I'm a sucker for a blonde...
