As most of you know, my band, El Pus, is working on its debut CD for Virgin, Anyhoo, I go into the studio and producer Darryl Swann goes, "Woody, what kind of treats didja bring me?" I told him that I brought four 4 string basses, and he said, "Wake 'em up!" After I play each bass for about 45 seconds, he tells me to play bass # 3 again. After about 30 seconds, he says, "That's it! That's the one!" So I did all 3 songs with bass # 3. After listening to the playback, I was like, "Wow! That's a sweet tone!" I was shocked. I won't mention the other basses, because it's not important, I just wanted to sing the praises of bass # 3. Oh yeah, bass # 3 was the Essex 62 Jazz copy! Stock!
