Have retired from the music scene but my 13 year old son is doing well on electric and double bass, hoping to get him into the conservatorium.
5 string Cort GB . Swamp ash body, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard. Active mightymite pickups, 1 jazz at neck and a big stingray style humbucker at the bridge. Very tight low B string, excellent neck. Cheap but good. Better than many instruments I tried out that cost twice as much, ( including some made in the same factory but belonging to "name" brands.)
James Jamerson, Aston "FamilyMan" Barret, Flea, Jaco, Noel Redding, many, many more.
Retired. My son played to 2,500 people in support of Vince Jones (Aussie Jazz Legend), 2 weeks ago. He kicked ass!
I cook vegetarian food at various music festivals. Get to see an awful lot of very good live music.
