    Mr. Watt-
    I have a favor to ask of you. I've been building basses from scratch for a few years now and have little to no "exposure." If I made a bass for you (N/C) would you use it occasionally on the road? I now you have an affinity to the ol' Gibsons, and far be it from me to change that, but it might help a budding luthier out. Plus it's a free bass. Let me know what you think.

    p.s. I saw you at the Norshore Theatre in Duluth ealier this week. Hellva show.

    I know when I saw Watt in Philly lat time - His bass had all the paint worn off it where his wrist rubs. - looked like he had played well more than a few gigs with that guitar. - I reckon when he finds a thud staff he likes - he sticks with it :)
