Of course I didn't need another bass, but...

    ...this one's a little different from my others. The Dean Stylist Cabbie. Unique paint scheme to say the least. 32" scale. Surprisingly, no neck dive. Perfect volume for quiet practicing while unplugged. It plays like somewhat of a hybrid between a regular electric bass with humbuckers and an acoustic. It can be prone to a little bit of feedback if you're not careful due to big hollow body. Overall, it's a fun bass that will grab a lot of attention.

    This one came used from Guitar Center in flawless condition, already strung with nice black tapewounds, a decent setup, and a hardcase that was made for it, all for not a lot of coin. What more can I say? It's very cool.

    The first time I ever saw one of these, it was being played by blues bassman/singer/frontman Biscuit Miller. I've got to get me one of those straps!

    Well, I found where the strap came from, but it sounds like it could be more costly than the bass. Lol

    cabbie strap.

    I've seen pics of your bass before. That is a thing of beauty. I love the look of the TV Jones pickups on there.

    You can get a decent approximation of an upright by soloing the neck pickup with a wad of felt shoved between the bridge and the bridge pickup.

    No need to worry about the question of how many basses you "need". The only acceptable answer is "one more than I have now".

    That is a sexy beast of a bass. I had no idea it came in that finish - or was that a custom job too?
