    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    Wow! That's a new one to me. BTW, he used to play for the Goodie Mob. He also used to endorse Modulus. Monster player!

    It's a Marco acoustic bass guitar. There's a photo of one in the April 2005 Bass Player that belongs to Marcus Miller.

    Tarus Mateen is a rediculous player with a great style all his own. Its nice to see his name here.

    Thanks for the info. Yes - a great player. People should check him out.
  5. Last weekend I saw Jason Moran filling in for Danilo Perez in the Wayne Shorter Quartet. Stand up job!

    That is a cool bass. Is it a fretless or a fretted? I can't quite see. Looks fretted, but I'm not sure.

    Waldog, looks like a lined fretless to my eyes. Also the action looks pretty high too. The one in the Marcus Miller article is headless too. I could not find a website for them though.

    Looks like super high action!
    Oh well, I guess upright bassists can deal with that -- I cant!
