The grumpy face is in no way a statement on the quality of the instrument ;) . Played the 6 fretless as well last Friday, backstage blues at Musicland.

Gosh, you've changed a lot, Nick, and I didn't know you had a fretless MM ;) .

I'm starting to wish I had a fretless MM, maybe it would make me play like Pino... probably not.

Couple of shots from Thursday night's blues gig. Full of (legal "cold") drugs as is clearly visible.
Always great to hit out with Glenn on the drums, we go a long way back playing fusion in a three piece so we just click, and occasionally take the blues to some other place.

Pics taken by Sean Clohesy, and I did a little bit of cropping and post-processing.

Recent photo of myself and my Dingwall Combustion V at The Gasometer. I really do love this bass.

I'll keep my ugly mug out of it for now......but here are two of my absolute favourite basses. Oh..and maybe the Maton and the Xotic 5'er as well. But these are the ones I'm gravitating to at the moment.

Yamaha BB1024X refinished in fiesta red and the MSGM build. I based the neck dimensions of the build around the Yamaha neck and love it. I'm pretty sure I could happily live with just these two basses.

Man your build looks stunning. In the future would you consider someone commissioning you to build such an instrument?

Thanks, that’s a really nice compliment.

Building for someone else is not something I’d consider right now, maybe something for the future though. On the flip side you could always contact the masters David Searle and Rob Pryke or the highly accomplished apprentice DrBass (Michael). Either of these guys could build you a real beauty of a bass to any specs that you like. Cheers
