Fodera Imperial Elite 5-String

This is my main bass for my own projects. I tune it E-C and it has Seymour Duncan dual-coil pickups, a Mike Pope preamp, a mahogany body, a flamed walnut top, and an ebony ramp and fingerboard.

Fodera NYC 5-string

I tune this bass B-G. It has Aero pickups, a Mike Pope preamp, an alder body, a chestnut top, and a rosewood fingerboard.

1964 Fender Precision Bass

Originally Seafoam Green, it was refinished natural sometime ago before I purchased it. It is unique because it has some intricate wood inlays on the front and back of the body. The electronics are all original, except the pickup was rewound by Linley Fralin a couple years ago.

1973 Fender Jazz Bass

This bass has the original black finish, but I replaced the pickups with Nordstrands. I use it on most of the pop/rock oriented gigs I play. It is my 2nd favorite bass next to the Fodera.

Zon Sonus Special 5-String Fretless

This bass has an amazing singing quality to it. I tune it E-C and I used it here and there on my solo album.

Circa 1950’s German Upright

I have always had a love/hate relationship with the upright bass until I came across this special instrument. I tried¬†it out at a local music store and I knew I had to buy it. It has a punchy, growly tone only much more expensive instruments I’ve played have. I installed a David Gage Realist pickup on it. The gigs I do have¬†expanded significantly since getting the hang of this instrument.
