    Pretty sure Manring's bass is like Thor's hammer.

    He can just hold out his hand and it'll come right back to him.

    I've only recently started getting around to listening the the old Brand X albums and that stuff is so fresh - even by today's standards.

    Percy never got the full acclaim that he deserved if you ask me.

    Easy ... Leroy Hodges was the bass player on numerous hits as part of the Royal Studio house band (the other Memphis studio besides STAX) he owns a 66ish candy apple red jazz bass matching headstock ... once owned by my brother, I’ve asked he won’t sell it

    I am completely dumbfounded, humbled and honored that I’m working with Bob Glaub’s Lakland USA BG01 that he gifted to Andrew Gold.
    I consider it a Sacred Groove Machine - I Love This Bass.

    I think I’m good.
    Unless I happen to run into Flea’s Shell Pink ‘61 Jazz - and a winning Powerball ticket :cool:

    Maybe not famous, but P-Nut’s early 90s bubinga Streamer Stage II would satisfy.
