Oh awesome. That's a beautiful bass! Kinda reminds me of the Joe Dart Bass that just went on sale today! Not sure if you're familiar with Vulfpeck (gotta love their site)... if not, then check'em out and enjoy the funk!

It's an Ernie Ball bass, just like the Stingray!

Did you know the Beatles played Gretch Guitars early on. I think the song "Nowhere Man" had Gretch guitars jingling in the background. Such a nice sound.

I'm sorry. Nowhere Man did not have Gretch, but others did.

That's a Vox AC-15. I know the Beatles were famous for using Voxes! ๐Ÿ˜€

My Gretsch has a little extra jangle now. ๐ŸŽธ
