    Having fun playing bass these days. Justin Chancellor has created some banging bass lines. 46 and 2 is a blast to play.

    According to this: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/jeff-shunk-baxters-gear.178347/

    "I remember in an interview him talking about his telecasters "Skunk-o-sonic"
    pickups he hand wound and configured for his great sound."

    So sounds like personal customized ones.

    Oh, and someone talk me out of buying a Gibson LP R8.

    yeah i sniffed around and the strat he plays on 'My Old School' was home-brew specifically for direct to board so he's one of those guys. i thought those might have been filtertrons... that live tone is hellacious.

    I just learned he's currently a defense consultant and chaired the Civilian Advisory Board for Ballistic Missile Defense. What the hell.
