Hello from Oklahoma, USA...
Hello there! (notice I didn't say "howdy" - trying to minimize Western US stereotypes!)
I have played piano/keys since I was 4-5 and didn't pick up the bass until my late teens. I have played bass off and on for the last 30 years, but have recently recommitted to the instrument in the last 2 years. I am trying to learn different genre's and also attempting to undo some bad habits that I picked up being mostly self-taught and playing by ear.
I play for fun with friends and also am a regular on keys and bass with my church. Hoping to insert myself into musical communities whenever possible and discover other opportunities to play!
I am currently awaiting a Progress IV with Wenge neck, rosewood fingerboard, and OW soapbars in forward position. Not sure about the top-wood yet, as I haven't gotten to that stage of production yet. This is my first-ever custom bass (or custom ANYTHING!), and am eagerly anticipating playing a beautifully crafted instrument!
Hey there Fred, welcome to the forum!
How's the build going? It can be quite an experience getting your own custom design, exciting times!
