Fretless Earthwood Bass with tapewound strings
 This looks just like my first bass. I nabbed this uncredited photo from vintageunivox.com Is that ok?  (I mean it's uncredited there ok?) I mean THank you vintageunivox.com. What a great bass that was, and SOMEONE STOLE IT FROM THE MUSIC ROOM at RIPPOWAM HIGH, OK? I mean, ok, I didn't leave it LOCKED UP in the music room... but a few other folks had left their instruments there, too, cuz no one had opened the instrument CLOSET yet... but I think only mine got stolen... so so so...so I left it there unlocked up so it was my fault and I know that ok? ok. I hope it's out there somewhere being loved.

 A bass very much like my maligned Kramer
 Foam rubber under flatwounds
 A Peavey T-40... Just what mine looked like before I had the frets ripped off. I stole this pic from someone's sale ad, OK?   
 That's the Ibanez rb820 on the left. I wrote on it with white out.
 My Steinberger. My fingers have put many miles on that thing.
