No more sissybox.  I am back on the bass.  As horrible as a guitar player I am, I’ve yet to find someone who can create that beautiful noise on guitar that is ever so important.  That’s not true, actually.  Sparkles from Radar Hate is the best.  That kid can create a racket on the guitar that would make Lee Ranaldo, Thurston Moore, and J Mascis extremely jealous.

Nonetheless, I am fortuneful.  I am in possession of the greatest sounding bass I’ve ever heard.  It’s the Morton Extortionist.

Never in my life have I championed a bass with active pickups, but this thing just sounds amazing.  It’s sound is somewhere between a Warwick and a Rickenbacker 4001.  I am in Heaven.  I have found my tone.  I could play this fella through any bass amp and it would sound amazing.  Thank you, Morton Guitars.  It’s an honour to be a sponsored player.   Now please get your site professionally done so I don’t look so bad….
