    Welcome. Perhaps you would care to elaborate? Jaco is dead as well and yet people still continue to learn from studying and playing his music. Better yet, tell us about your Guild experiences. ;-)

    Thank you. Not a comment on the Master's music, but rather an opportunity to quote the Residents' lively tune of that name. Highly recommended.

    My Guild experiences are vicarious, as Mr Face can attest. I have lusted after these basses and have mightily enjoyed Mr Lesh's playing since the late '60s.

    The Residents are not part of my pop culture so your comment had no context for me and came across as that of a Troll. Since I am not always right, I needed to say something that gave you the benefit of the doubt, just in case you weren't a Troll. I guess I need to add the Residents to the list of things that I don't know about but might enjoy if I did ;-)

    I recommended a Newark Street M-85 but the fool bought some sort of Fender-shaped bass instead.

    Alas, a fool and his money are soon parted.

    Blasphemy.

    I do understand that hollow bodied short scale instruments are not some people's cup of tea. But a Guild Pilot, long scale, solid, can give many Fender shaped thingies a run for their money. I called out the Starfire because I think they are easier to find.

    He should know better. He owned and played a Jack Casady bass. In fact, he may have laid his meaty paws upon the Darkstared D'A Starfire I bought from Fred Hammond on the Dupepit the night he sold three of them.

    Haroldo should come on up and play my M-85 and get spoiled.

    Still do play the JC quite regularly. I've also a Darkstarred '59 Precision (ewwww!) reissue, plus a Darkstar just hangin' 'round lookin' for a bass. I have been looking at the Newark St. Starfires with interest, however. Maybe a largish year's end bonus could push me over the edge.....

    How are the Guild Bisonics? Would a SFII with one Guild and one Darkstar be a match made in sonic heaven?

    Mr. Face, thank you for the invitation to shuffle on up to Portland and get spoiled. I am starting to re-engage with this world, so you might see me on your quasi-brownstone's door step with bass case in hand.
