    I love a very figured grain pattern on instruments, and not to dash your impression of that wood grain, but most of the time the grain is hand painted by a set painter. I was a propman in the movie...

    Thank you very much Lynda. I'm not a soloist, especially on bass since I have to concentrate most times on playing. I did put together a video that includes me playing bass and singing (which I did...
