um….that’s what musicman basses all sound like.

Nice of you to throw in some Barney Miller at the end. I atually like this
thing, but do have to say… It sounds very little like the original
(pickup or preamp-wise). Looks great though

What does speaking ability have to do with playing Bass? To me your the
incompetent one.

Written By James Billinger on April 17th, 2014 @ 12:51 pm

If your wondering what that tune he played was called. It was called,”Give
up the bass”.

well, he might an incompetent speaker like someone said before, so was Kurt
Cobain, one guy who wasn’t nearly as good with his instrument like this
dude but was very musical and creative. Who cares how they talk.

Written By mauricio rincon on April 17th, 2014 @ 3:14 pm

“follow your heart” in other words, he’s not going to try and tell someone
else how to play….

Written By Brendon Waterman on April 17th, 2014 @ 3:49 pm

@Davis Fehrman you can see the “Ibanez” headstock when he is standing up..
I am guessing something from the custom shop.

several would be an understatement lol

Written By jryuwah on April 17th, 2014 @ 6:55 pm

Have you heard the lines he is dropping on bass? He’s more than competent
at speaking, you just might not be hip to the language.

Written By Prof3ssrBrando on April 17th, 2014 @ 7:40 pm

Written By Nick Owens on April 17th, 2014 @ 7:57 pm

Written By Brian M. on April 17th, 2014 @ 10:34 pm
