EQUIPMENT

Unfortunately I lost a substantial amount of gear when my house in North Pole Alaska was damaged due to burst/freezing pipes, so gear is a constant rebuilding effort.

Currently playing a Schecter Diamond 4 String through a Fender Bassman 200. Expecting to buy a Rickenbacker 4001 in the next 3 months as well as replace my custom Fender Jazz as I have time. I’m not a big effects guy, but have several pedals as required, and am not opposed to expanding my effects if needed.
