    The OM Trio played at a local coffeehouse last week and I brought one of my basses to show to Pete Novembre, their bassist. He really liked it and ended up using it for the whole second set! :bassist: I thought it sounded pretty good, but I couldn't get a copy of the house recording so no clips.


    No big deal for most of you I'm sure, but it was great fun for me to see one of my "babies" up on stage. :)

    Wow. That looks pretty snazzy. It's nice to have a refence shot like that, for spatial reasons.

    The GAS...the GAS...
     
  4. Similar story. One of my friends recorded his second CD and used my Fretless on one of the songs. Cool hearing it on CD. :smug:

    Re: OM Trio

    Those guys are weird. This might be slightly off topic. I got a really strange impression of them at the High Sierra Music Fest a couple years ago. Basically they were running around before their set talking frantically and loudly about what time they were all "dropping molly." I thought they were some crazy fans, no big deal - unitl they jumped on stage. I know festivals are fun for everybody but it was just weird to see them get so worried about what time they were all going to take drugs. I would think they would be more concerned with their set of music. Pretty lame - just felt like sharing...

    I bet it was cool to see your bass on stage.

    Do you mean this one? It's not full hollowbody, just semi-hollow. It belongs to TB'er 5stringDNA.

    Fantastic work, Tim - both of your basses in this thread! Do you do your own inlay work, too?

    Oooh, quite spanky inlay.

    Congrats Tim- if things go well with my new Blues band gig, then you'll see some more pics of one of your babies on stage. :D The correct knobs finally came in, and I can post a completed pic for everyone tommorow when I put them on. Now if only I could round up the funds for a 6 (possibly 7 string scary!). The pains of being a college student.

    That is by far the coolest inlay I have ever seen! :cool: I love dragonflys and that just nails one. Great job!

    Hey, that looks cool! Nothing like a six-month wait for a set of knobs, huh? :rolleyes:

    Haha! No Joke! I guess Ibanez only sends out shipments bi-annually. :D
