Those early 3-switch models look so good.

Tasteful playing, and quite a snappy outfit too!

Everything he plays oozes with cool. 8)
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

I can only agree! Tastefully selected piece of music that presents the instrument at its best.

Oh hey I just saw this!

Thanks y'all.

That particular Bass VI is... incredible.

There's something about those very early ones with the special pickups that were only used on the VI. After those very earliest few, they went to, basically, Jaguar pickups. And while those are cool... it's not quite like these.

If I had infinite money, I'd love to have one.

Very cool to see this demo and the other videos they put up, Brad...will you be doing these regularly for them? :)

I did a few over the course of a day. Perhaps if they want to have me back I'll come in and do some more.
