Basses

Fender Highway One™ Jazz Bass

(made in the U.S.A. in December 2005)
  • Alder body, rosewood fretboard
  • Crimson Red Transparent
  • Leo Quan BadAss Bass Bridge II (slotted)
  • Fender Custom Shop ’60s Pickups
  • Dunlop Straplok® Dual Design
  • tuned EADG

This is my main bass and was my only bass for many years. I bought it new in 2006 and upgraded the pickups and the bridge soon after. I played hundreds of concerts with it and it is currently my main JazzyBIT bass.

Fender ’78 – ’80 Precision Bass

(made in the U.S.A. between 1978 and 1980)
  • Ash body, rosewood fretboard
  • Natural
  • tuned EADG

My first “vintage” bass seems to be 100% original. Serial number says 1978, pots 1979 and the pickups 1980. It is pretty light for that period. I use it with Urma, Amalia Gaiță and Paperjam.

Fender ’62 RI Precision Bass

(made in Japan in 1997)
  • Alder body, rosewood fretboard
  • Ocean Turquoise Metallic
  • Blackstar Guitars pickup & wiring harness
  • Dunlop Straplok® Dual Design
  • tuned EADG

My Precision Bass which I use at rehearsals.

Warwick Corvette Standard 4

(made in Germany in August 1996)
  • Ash body, wenge fretboard
  • Honey Violin
  • Dunlop Straplok® Flush Mount
  • tuned BEAD or BbEbAbDb

I got this bass from eBay in 2012 because I needed a more aggressive sounding bass for Sunset in the 12th House. Also I did not want to get a 5 string, so I strung it BEAD or BbEbAbDb.

Amplifiers

Markbass Mini CMD 121P

(made in Italy in February 2011)
  • 1×12”, 500 W solid state bass guitar combo amplifier

Got this very light and good sounding bass combo in 2011 and played it a lot since then. Very portable!

DI & Pedals

The Radial J48™ is usually my DI out. Loving the pedals, but the musical context must allow their use.
