    Right you are FITZ-CARALDO, it's indeed thumbing position and is covered fully in Simandl book III, Preparatory Course For Punk Playing.

    I dunno...looks more like my old American Standard she's got there if you ask me. Check it out:

    PHREE SMUT,

    Right you are, vol. 3. Be sure to check out the accompanying Aebersold play along, "25 All Time Punk Standards in All Keys", otherwise known as "Vol. 69: The I-I-I Progression".

    Nah, it's a Kay, or Englehart. The upper bouts are too small to be an American Standard. ...but it's green !! That is quite the picture. Did someone send that to you Bob, or did you just come across it?

  10. You wouldn't believe how many basses I've had come into my shop with the same use of Duct tape.

    Coupla missed opportunities:

    1) "extension" jokes, as in "if that bass didn't have an extension before, it sure does now!"

    2) nothing said about the half-assed tattoo

    I also found myself thinking about the access panels in Bob Ross' basses, but that's just too obscure for humour....
