The very fact that you have stopped by means you are a fan of the bass guitar. The thunder, the rumble, the power to get on stage and shake the rafters. People on the dance floor move their behinds to your sound, and you are the coolest musician on that stage!

It’s one of the most distinctive Fender bass guitars ever.

From the notreble.com website:

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.
