A chance to put my mug on the 'net is all it is!
I work all night and sleep all day in the "city that never sleeps"
well, the sleeping part I do out in "Whitelandia" (as Ron Kuby
the WABC morning talk guy call's it). Over the hills and far
away from NYC there is the "skylands area" as they call my
cranny of Northern NJ. Where I live with my wife and son
and 2 cats 2 (huge)goldfish and the critters on stale bread welfare
who come through the property for a hand out.
I used to run a service dept at a music store
out in the suburbs of
NYC called Grand Guitars (formerly Gilsonite Music) I did "trem
system" installations for the likes of The Misfits, as well as repairing
their shell shocked amps! It was a great life till the store closed and I
got into computers and broadcast television as a way to pay the bills.
Hinterland is the 3rd studio I designed and built for myself - I have
done several for other folks as well, And consulted for many brave
do-it yourselfers on wiring/acoustics issues.
My Blue Jazz and my new blue PT!
Below is my "bassgang" ! First is a
Jazz body with a USA Custom Guitars
neck and DiMarzio Ultra jazz pickups, to the right is my Phil Kubicki Jazz
neck on a Fender alder P Bass body and Duncan Quarter Pounder pickups
and a Hot stack Duncan Jazz pickup - next is my solid shedua fretless P-bass
with all gold hardware and a 1978 Fender P neck and Duncan Hot pickups,
Bottom left is my Kubicki X Factor, and lastly, "The Hag" my late 60's Hagstrom 8-string bass.
The Kubicki is gone, sold to pay medical
bills~! Doubt I can ever afford another, but I DID
get my Rics~!
