These - but not all at once:


Left to right:
Ibanez SR800LE (with Hipshot Xtender) - my main gigging bass.
Ibanez SR800 fretless - as above only redder & less fretty.
Aria Pro RSB Deluxe 2 - my first "grown up" bass - needs a good wash!
Peavey C5 - Cheap & very lovely 5-string (which turned out to be a 4 string with a very long thumbrest - or was that just me?)
Hohner B2A - licensed Steinberger copy (wish I had a real one) and a great portable spare bass.
Ibanez EDA900 - Made of plastic, shaped like a blob of melted toffee, Piezo pickup and bright orange - the world's gayest bass?
Tokai B-135 Talbo - yes, it is made of metal.


And since I am now broke and cannot buy any more basses, I have had to resort to this:



Bought this for

London - 8/9/2004
London - 9/9/2004

Manchester - 12/9/2004

WOW!!!! Very impressive.

Thanks Willie - it's really just the product of years of hoarding & not being able to part with anything!

But none of them have LEDs :'(  ;)

Make the rest of your band happy and don't worry about putting pickups in it. Then make it your primary rehearsal/gigging guitar lol

(sorry, lost my sense of drummer's decorum there for a second ::) well it is friday  :D)

I think it's extremely childish when one musician tries to ridicule another, due soley to the fact that they play a different instrument. ;)


I was merely passing on some friendly, inside information as the member of 'the rest' of a band. :)
