  1. Ya, I came across this site awhile ago. I can't believe how nice these are considering how he was self-taught and did not have a lot of experiencing in woodworking. I guess anybody can do something they put their mind to.

    Reminds me of a Pedulla Buzz/MVP...which is not bad by any stretch of the imagination.

    He is a great guy! I chat with him from time to time, and he frequents Carl Thompson's message board www.ctbasses.com , and www.mimf.com

    He does some very good work.

    They look nice. Like more stretched version of a Pedulla MVP/Buzz (as stated before), but not as wild as an FBB.

    Wow, I'm being talked about! How cool! Thanks for the comments guys. And do I ever wish I had some Lane Poors just laying around - I wouldn't be surprised if I got one of the last ones. I had it just long enough to be hooked and then discover they were no more. (sigh) Thanks again guys. I just started reading talkbass a couple of weeks ago btw.

    I'm interested in prices too, but I recently saw a post on the CT website indicating that a price list and options might not currently be available. On a related but different topic, I haven't been able to access Yancey's web site recently, and the e-mail message I sent was kicked back. Does anyone know what the deal is here?

    Yeah, I'm gonna start a new thread just for his stuff... maybe he'll stop by and notice. I've played his stuff personally, and man... its incredible. The playability and sound is phenomenal as well. I met Greg probably 8 months ago, and I'm proud to say that his 12th bass will belong to me. I'm sure he'd be happy to hear from you through his website www.gregyancey.com

    His band Opposite Day is incredible as well.

    peace.
