Played my first electric bass in junior high. I was playing stand up bass in the school orchestra and wanted to play more modern music. While I’ve learned to play some guitar, the bass and I are soul mates. At that time, I began playing Rock and also Blues. Today, I’m in a garage band with some great friends playing music from The Ramones, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Weezer, Velvet Revolver, U2 (my favorite band) and whatever else we want. I have a handful of Fender or Fender-style basses, a Music Man 5-string, and a semi-acoustic Ibanez. Recently, I bought a black Jaguar Bass, added a drop-D tuner, and have been using it as my gigging ax. I prefer flat-wound strings and finger playing, but some songs just sound better with a pick.
I'm a tinkerer and prior to working at Warmoth, I had been a customer. I love buying an abused bass and giving it the TLC it deserves to bring it back to life. Most of my basses have different pickguards, pickups, knobs, or tuners than when I bought them. Recently, I had a Warmoth sea foam green Jazz bass body built and attached my favorite Fender Precision neck. Perfect! Mixing and matching is one of the benefits of buying Warmoth custom guitar and bass parts.
