Well it seems I last posted in 2015. Since then a lot has changed.

I revisited playing bass as well and have been working a number of gigs weekly between electric, acoustic and bass. Currently in 3-5 gigs weekly.

Got remarried. Then bought more gear.

Moved. Then bought more gear.

Consulting a local mom/pop music store in the side. They won NAMMs Dealer of the Year this year.

Been through 2 real jobs and multiple contract roles. I’m liking this current FT job so far after 6 months.

Lots of gear updates. Will post pics in a bit of some of them.
