    Okay, what's that story? All I know is that John Myung used Tung basses for certain period of time (including that Proggressive Concepts video he did which I'll get in a few days ¦-D) and I heard something along the lines of Nicholas Tung only building 100 or so basses and then just quitting. Is this info acurate? On top of that, is there anything else I'd be happy to know about (you be the judge of whether your input will make me happy :p). ¦-)

    we've talked about it before...mr. tung went to texas and he now owns a restaurant. something about the industry ticked him off or some such...he used to work with mike tobias back in the day before he opened his own shop...but yeah, 100 or so basses is all he made...then he fizzled out.
