One of 6 that I have.

Saw Michael Manring play this tune flawlessly last night in Berk:

He's better live, super nice guy.
No one "covers" his tunes......

I have one and the are amazing.

BTW like your playing, it is a crying shame that you stop doing it.

Great bass player Tom.

I am trying to learn to play the blues on a fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster® Thinline

Tom: I love bass guitar , and upright bass... Never learned to play it though..
Gotten interested in bass when i heard Stanley Clarke playing with RTF... ...and also Marcus Miller playing with Miles Davis.. ..brilliant !

dbazuin: I actually never liked playing through those preamps because i like to use speaker feedback for sustain.. ..but it's pretty handy, better than nothing i guess :)

here's another (bluesy) one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcE3XiyqnpQ

That is a Stanley Clarke short neck Alembic.
I hardly play it though, more the Modulus fret flea/fretless custom and Kubicki, and a nice single cut buckeye burl.
Also a Status streamline.
I go through a SWR stack, 6 10's and 15, BNX board etc.
Got distracted when I moved to the SF area. So did not pursue the art as much as I should have.

Have you actually used the vox ones?
Me I was totally surprised by the sound it produces. It has a very good substain.
Point is indeed when you must choose between playing trough a vox plug or not playing well I actually don't think there is much of a choice.

Nice peace of blues

tried it in a shop once , it does sound good.. , although i miss the poweramp-speaker part..
digital preamps have gone sky high since the Line6's Pod..
...made a life easy to a lot of people , not having to hurt their back loading and unloading Marshall stack to a gig..

It is indeed amazing what can do digital wise.
I have a VOX amp thats is partly digital but also has a tube.
Sounds good.

This is my day to day Martin. An 000CX1E, which is a discontinued model, but there are comparable models to it available, but the necks are not of the same quality . I have a "better" dreadnought style Martin, but I prefer the auditorium size so I play this one 98% of the time.

This is one of my electrics. I have a '92 American strat and a Charvel Tx Custom as well, however, they are tucked away in the closet currently.
