and vintage vibes both sonically and aesthetically.

Fretless phenom Steve Bailey’s serpentine sojourns certainly sound superb on

bass boasts an ash body, an asymmetric ovangkol neck, a fretless snakewood
fingerboard, and Steve’s signature Seymour Duncan pickups and electronics.

Raptor rig is cocked to knock your block off!
The 220-watt MiBass 220 and the 550-

feature-rich heads that look righteous

plans to offer customizable faceplates
that can be etched with user-defi ned
