So stoked!

So stoked! I just got one of the brand new Fender American Professional II Precision V basses. Fender announced them back in August, but they just released them from production a few weeks ago. I still absolutely love my Stingray basses, but for studio sessions and certain projects, sometimes I need that quintessential P-bass sound. This new model is exactly what I’ve been looking for, because the shape and width of the neck is very similar to the Stingray, so I can jump back and forth between the using the Stingray or the P-bass without having to retrain my brain every time. This bass plays like a dream and indeed it has that classic P-bass tone.

I’ll spend a little time in the next few weeks getting this bass customized with an @alperiouspickguard, etc., but first it’s off to @13thStreetGuitars to get PLEK’d and set up. 🤘😎

My acoustic smoothy!

My acoustic smoothy! This fretless 5-string Dragonfly acoustic bass made by @michaelkellyguitars is so much fun to play. I added a K&K Pure Bass transducer pickup that I blend with the built-in piezo pickup. It sounds fantastic and has so much character, whether I’m recording or playing a live acoustic set with a band. As a bonus, it’s waaay easier to bring this to gigs instead of lugging around a stand-up bass.

I love playing many different genres of music.

I love playing many different genres of music. As a hired musician, I am continually learning and improving my craft by playing in playing in tribute and cover bands as well as playing original music. Here’s a new highlight clip from ‘Raise Your Glass’, our tribute to P!nk and her amazing band family, including Justin Derrico and Eva Gardner.
