    He's probably too crappy at slapping to do it with the A string there.:p

    Um. . .have you guys ever heard the playing on June of '44 or the Crownhate Ruin. Fred Erskine is a pretty good musician. Especially since he sings lead. er. . .screams lead anyway. ;)

    I'm not completely humourless. :)

    And I thought the night ranger basses had soapbar pickups.

    It broke, and he doesn't know how to put a new one on.
