Hello fretters,
Just got on board, and glad to be here. Hell, I'm glad to be most anywhere! My name is Koy, and I hail from West Texas. I am kind of new to playing music, I have been playing Bass for about 2.5 years now, and its a load of fun. I currently have 5 basses in the stable. First is my favorite, I play this Warwick Standard 4 string 70% of the time:



Its heavy, but has remarkable growling tone. Next in the line-up, and gets used quite a bit, my Fender Marcus Miller 5 string. This is what I consider the flagship of my basses:



Its pristine and plays like a dream! Up next, the Japanese Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass. My only non-American Fender. Very well made and a strong voice:



I had to Americanize it some, so I added the Texas Flag pickguard! Next is my Tradition Fretless:



This is an inexpensive fretless, but it has a great neck, and I would give it an 8 out of 10. Very lightweight Basswood tips the scale at a mere 5 pounds. I enjoy rattling the windows by plugging these into an Ampeg Bass amp or 2.



The Solid State B2R Head & the large 4X10 cab is one amp, and its ok, but what I really want is a Classic Ampeg Tube Head! Sandwiched in between the B2R & the 4X10 is a nice little BA115HP Combo amp.

I also picked up a few guitars for visiting players to use when they would drop in for a jam, but that didnt happen as often as I thought it would, so I decided to start playing some guitar as well. Been picking around on guitar about 4 weeks now, and I think I am making some progress, but its going to be a long row to hoe! Little tiny fretboards, and contortionistic chord patterns are truley the nemissis of a Bass player! Heres whats in the Guitar stable. My first is the old stand by of many a guitarist, Im sure everybody here has had one The American Standard Strat. This one is a 60th Anniversary edition:



Next is an Arbor Full Hollow Body Jazz type guitar. Chinese made & you could pick up 10 of these before you would find one this good. I got lucky! Traded this for some custom Jewelry I made:



Next is my Carvin Thinline Acoustic. I really like this little lightweight Jewel! American made & top quality little Guitar.



Ok, last one! I picked this beauty up this past week, and Im glad I did. Its a Ibanez EW20ZWent Acoustic/Electric. Beautiful agressive grain, sweet throaty tone, and a great feel make this a keeper!



I have a Peavey Ecoustic 112 that just loves my Acoustic stuff:



And a Vintage Peavey Artist 240 Tube amp from the 70's thats sweet for the electrics.
Its been around the block a few times, but still rocks the house!
Ok, so that about it for this introduction. I hope to improve my skill in part to this group. Im sure I will learn alot here. Who knows, I may even be able to toss out a few pearls myself! Look forward to exchanging ideas with everyone here. Until then,

hey if you wan't to make all that stuff your signature, go to the top left part of the forum where it will say "Control Panel". Click it , then click signature, and then type your gear. Then it will appear instead of you having to type it

Hey, not to put you off or anything - good to see enthusiastic people- but there's a forum for new people to say hi in. There are also specific forums regarding instruments etc. Take a look at those and go to the Newbie forum to post your hellos.
