    I love Mike, but to me, that is one ugly bass guitar.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    To me, Mike and the JD bass are synonymous.

    I think a bass made of his own hot sauce bottles would probably fit best. Hell, you could even distress or relic the fuck out of it...paint a giant pink taco on it and call it a day. Mike lives in Newport now and I am there every day, I wonder how long it will be before I run into him. I've met him before but I think this time I'll just say "thank you" for the music this time.

    I would be shocked if that is CF, doesn't sound like Chad Smith at all, or Joe for that matter.

    Kind of cool to see the details in the video, about assembly and installation of the body components and hardware. Not sure he'll sell a lot of them, but good for him.
