    Gig review:
    First off this was my first gig with this band, Token Blonde ( www.tokenblonde.com ). I had about a week to learn the night's worth of music and then some. Granted none of the songs were that tough to figure out but the sheer quantity of material was tough to remember. Every song started sounding like every other song. Stuff like :
    Rocking in the Free World
    I'm Just a Girl
    Bobby McGee
    Gold Dust Woman
    Boys of Summer
    a few Donnas tunes
    She talks to Angels
    Ocean Ave
    Crawling in the Dark
    etc.

    I was a little stiff all night. Partly because I wasn't totally confident about the music and partly because I wasn't confident about playing a five on stage. Not at all because of the additional scale length.

    Sonically, this bass is a monster. Full and rich. Lots of information in each note, like 96 bit when regular basses are 16 bit. Fantastic fantastic instrument.

    Yo, don't forget it's analog, m'kay?
    And bit-depth is nothing without sample rate :p
