I have a Ricky 320 3/4 scale rhythm guitar with Bigsby, similar to John Lennon's 325 for early Beatles stuff and also a Squire Strat for more bluesy/rock stuff.

I cannot play well but know sufficient chords and scales to help out where necessary :lol:

Not surprisingly I do like to play fretless bass (Cort Artisan B4FL Mahogany) and mess about on a Steinberger NS Design CR4 electric Cello using loops and effects for fun.

Most of my 'proper' music-making is done as Baritone voice in a classical chamber choir (usually bass parts, sometimes tenor) - concert next week doing 16th century religious works (Byrd, Tallis, etc.).

Haven't played much bass recently - lack of time. When I do it's mostly metal/punk riffs, Joy Division/Cure new wave and lots of weird ambient stuff that I make up as I go along.

I like what you have done there. Naughty Vintage Audiophiles is good, but not so much emphasis on the vintage please :shhh:
