Gotta give mad props to my friend and guitar builder, Mike Pedulla! He’s in the December, 2011 issue of Bass Player magazine, featured in the “Meet Your Maker” series.
Sometimes it’s hard to put into words why one instrument feels better than another. But I think Mike may have hit on something in this article. He said to author, Rod Taylor, “An instrument is more [than a bass]. It has an energy that comes from the builder and the player.”
