    There is a Randy Coven thread going in the "Recordings" folder, but I thought I would call this to your attention here. At Coven's web site he has photos of his many unique and custom made basses, plus a description of their "history."

    If you would like to check out his basses, go to the site linked here and click on "Toys."

    Just an extra comment. His latest recording features a song played with his three octave fretless bass.

    he toured with yngwie for the WAR TO END ALL WARS tour.

    I have never seen a bass player play runs like that so effortlessly.

    The only thing I have by him is Funk Me Tender and that is a killer album.
    I would love to see him live.
