    tuning: F# B E A D G C F Bb

    String Spacing: 16.5mm

    The bass is in mint condition. Bought in july 2005, it plays beautifully and it is extremely well balanced. It is a versatile and very comfortable instrument. It is definitely the best bass I ever played and I'm only selling it to finance another JP with more strings.

    there's not a lot a stuff uploaded on my FTP. But this little waltz (I play mainly trad and folk music) can give you an idea of the sound and range of the bass:


    I'll post more soundclips shortly.

    That's gorgeous. I'd like to hear more. You have a CD?

    I assume that's all you in one take and not overdubbed?

    Thanks guys!

    I don't have a CD, but I'll definitely post more tunes if you're interrested. This waltz was quickly recorded, if I remember well I had 3 tracks: arpeggios/main melody/second melody that doubles or complements the main one in the highs.

    Glen's CD "Rocking the 9 all the Time" is on iTunes!

    My Favorite track "Je Pense... Ma Bite dans ton cul, Madame!"

    A bump for a kick-butt bass.

    P.S. - I've tasted Glen's Chat Bite Coucous - it's simply divine!
  15. Wow nice bass and nice recording.

    wow, high school French was good for something...in short, it's fairly profane and would make you giggle if you read it in English.
