The show goes on
The continuing story of basses. This time it was a run to Sydney and Bresques Basses. BB is Matthew Tucker in Marrickville. He shares the workshop with Dave Ellis of Homebass. So, a good opportunity to chat bass, talk bass, indulge. So it was, but this was serious business. I worried about a possible sagging top under one bridge foot. In the end, no problem there and a few other jobs done for a significantly louder and firmer sounding bass if a little weightier. The weather was good and this town seemed so much better out of a car and those hours wiled in Marrickville Road saved a return trip so I arrived home, 12 hours after setting out, happy and expectant of next practice. Bring it on.
