SPB: What model of guitar do you play and how did you choose it?
Steve: I play a fender mexi pbass with delano pmvc 4 fe/m2 pickups (quarter pounders on roids) and always a fresh set of 45-100 strings. It's super bright, but still meaty. My stingray was too stingray-ey for me. My american pbass has a lot of sentimental and monetary value, so I'd prefer not to risk taking it out of my house. I bought a cheap MIM fender pbass on craiglist, then replaced almost every component and had a buddy paint on it, and it does exactly what I need it to while being a fun conversation starter with some gear nerds.
Rory [plays a] Gibson Les Paul or SG Silverburst ‘60s slim style neck for his baby trump hands. Burstbucker pro pickups. 10-46 Ernie Ball regular slinkys. Sounds great. Looks great.
