    KINGSTON, Jamaica — Lloyd Brevett, a renowned double bassist who helped carry ska music from Jamaica to the world as a founding member of the hugely influential band The Skatalites, died Thursday at age 80.

    Family spokeswoman and close friend Maxine Stowe said Brevett died shortly before dawn at a Kingston hospital where he was being treated for seizures and complications from a recent stroke.

    From the Fender Pawn Shop webpage:

    This is the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass, which stands our popular Jaguar bass design on its head with features including a “reverse” body and “reverse” headstock, new pickguard shape, two enormous Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickups and a streamlined control layout of a single three-way pickup toggle switch and two knobs (volume and tone). It’s one of the most distinctive Fender bass guitars ever.

    From the notreble.com website:

    "Three years ago today, we officially launched this online magazine for bassists we call No Treble.

    Over these three years, we’ve made many friends: almost 66,000 on Facebook, over 4,500 on Twitter - not to mention the countless bassists we’ve met at NAMM, at concerts and other places. This, without a doubt, is the best part for us here at No Treble HQ."

    I've received a few emails today from folks who have not been able to view the front page posts.

    If you have trouble viewing any of the articles, drop us a line and let us know. I've tested everything and all seems okay, so it may have been nothing more than a temporary whoopsy-daisy!! (that's the extremely highly technical term for glitch)

    Just wanted to form an updated sentence or two on the latest rage in the Bass world, which - of course - is Brian Bromberg's Bass On The Broadband.

    Going to school has never been this smooth, cool, and in the groove! If you are like me - somewhat lacking in knowledge of the bass world in its largest, most diverse sense - listening to BotB is just that...like going to school.
