This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Here are my sticks:

Right to left:
-Epiphone Viola "beatle bass"... my first and main bass... had it a year now. I love the classic hollow body thump it has. Great for classic rock. I use it at my school with my students in the jazz band.
-ZZ Ryder Low Ryder... I spotted it across the room (in a pawn shop) when I was looking for a solid body to go with my beatle bass. I liked the look of it (kinda like what McCartney woulda played in that parallel universe where Spock has a goatee) and call it my "anti-beatle". Just put better pickups and tuners on it... so the cheap chinese chrome pups you see here with black rings are now replaced with EMG Select Humbuckers with chrome rings. It will be my "play at the football games" bass when my new bass gets here.
-Applause AE-40 acoustic electric. I got it so I could practice at a camp I go to without hauling an amp.

In about 5 months or so I will be adding a Birdsong Cortobass to the family. Walnut center, ebony stringers, sycamore wings, black hardware, 2 pickups... You may drool now. Here is the site... check em out... these guys are great and make sweet axes. http://www.birdsongguitars.com/

All short scales... I like shorties despite my Kevin McHale arms and King Louie hands.

Heres another pic of my basses since the last one got deleted. The Ibanez doesn't get much playing time at all these days. I just put a new set of D'Addario strings on my Spector and they are awesome .

SeaFoam Green '51-ish 32" scale rescue. I bought it as a pile of parts( and a baggie of little pieces), planning to use the neck and hardware and build a body. The more I looked at it the more I realized it was screaming to be a retro.
It's fretless and has flatwounds.

( center ) My first bass...a Hamer Slammer Chaparral CP4. Basic pbass copy

My first build. A Cigar Box Bass. 4-string with a piezo pick-up under the neck. The fretless neck is red oak and poplar, bone nut and a wood bridge. Very woody, acousticcyy sounding.
