    I've never really had to play for a paycheck, so I reinvest gig money in cool axes when I find one. Here's some of my worker b's. As you can see, I am biased a certain direction...

    This one's my oldest compatriot, bought new in ~'78...

    DEcided after that I really liked fretless, and you can't beat g&l for tonal flex...

    Couldn't believe my luck finding this, I'd kinda always wanted one since going to a ZZ Top show. You have to use a rig with big eq to make a telecaster not sound like a pool of mud...

    Traded a late 70's Rick for this, now I hardly ever play anything else. The lace pickups and active electronics work nice...I just ordered a Brice fretless J5, I hope I ilke it as well as this one.

    I mostly play thru a very portable SWR Redhead, but I do have a larger SWR rackmount, and 2 Peavey 18/2-10 cabinets as well...Hate moving them though:)

    WOW! impressive collection!

    :bassist:

    Those matching P basses are perfect.

    What kind of stuff do you play?

    Sorry for the slow reply, busy holiday weekend!

    "I'm a ho!"

    On the one hand, I;ll play for who ever wants to pay, I gots bills:) On the other hand, I really like any kind of blues and jazz a lot. Steady jobs right now are my blues based band, a little jazz quartet, and a lounge kinda deal with two lady singers. I played in big swing/jazz bands all thru high school, college, and my earlier days, and wish there was more of a big band scene where I live. I miss a big stonkin' horn section:)

    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your bass has no strings...

    Yep!
    I really wanted a low B fretless, so I restrung that one. Had to hog the nut slots out a little for the bigger strings of course. I then found I can't really live without a g-string (shut it!), and so it's down til I can smack a new nut in it and set it back up.
