Cool bass and great fun! One thing makes me laugh about folks across the
water in Canada and USA and it’s this: Tube…”Toob” no, it’s Choob! And
”Sodder” no, it’s Soul der! Always gets me that, so there’s an English
diction lesson from an Englishman! Good stuff though Dave, still working my
way through your extremely comprehensive video set here on youchoob! Best
wishes man!

Class video. I was pleased to see you cover many of the well-known uses the
Longhorn served throughout music history.

The Elvis Costello bass player was actually playing one on tour in the
mid-nineties (? 94/95/96. can’t remember). I think that at that time they
were begining to reedit the danelectros.
