    Surprising at least. Mind you he was a widower when he went back to the smokes.

    Potato and ice cream for dessert?

    Duke - sounds like half the fun is in just creating unexpected sonic gems in your synth lab of a home studio. Your work and compositions are becoming more complex and continuing nicely down the Prog path. I'd imagine you're starting to accumulate a nice library of useable compositions. Can't wait to see how you pull them all together and package them - maybe backing tracks in a song or an intro (shades of Pink Floyd's Echos)
    BTW - this sound clip is timed perfectly for Halloween. I might just loop it and play it over the outdoor speakers on trick or treat night. It has a very ominous and spooky feel.
    Keep em commin!

    Yep, they look good and play in their own way. I had one and liked it, but...

    That would be awesome! I was thinking ‘dark ambient’ when I was jamming out the parts, and yes, I have hours and hours of this crap since I pretty much record everything :)

    Can you play it using your doorbell as the switch ?
     
  7. ...and "Soupy" is the very dry version you get from one only store/maker, in Westerly, RI.
    Fun RI factoid.

    It really is amazing. The body is a refin but everything else is original. Best feeling/playing Pbass neck I ever touched. A little more narrow than most. Darn them for not using computers back then!

    He did, but it still sounded thin for my tastes. Playing was killer, however.

    Thanks! The neck and toe is to die for. (But still no old Thunderbird.) Some seemed to have some really chunky and wide necks. I don't think consistency was a thing yet. But all that hand shaping made them all unique.

    So you like the older style like this? (Though 57 was the transition year.) This is my 55. Different neck but love the way is feels with all it's chunkieness. Doesn't sound as good. (This was before I but the correct logo on it. That area and the body were refinished and they used a later logo. Fixed now.)

    Don't recall ever playing one.

    Yeah, what you got there is the definition of "not thin!" Though I love a good 335!

    Yes indeed!

    I'm one of those guys who plays crappy but has some nice stuff to make me at least sound better!

  15. All that needs is some crusty Italian bread, sharp provolone, and roasted red peppers!
     
  16. Wow! Where's the gold anodized pick guard?

  19. Is that for snacking during a gig, or do you just REALLY like soft picks?
