This week The Happy Hour welcomes songwriter and slide guitarist Cristina Vane!
"Like a young Bonnie Raitt, Vane sings both from her voice and her supple slide guitar playing almost simultaneously - her sound as earthen as the South Dakota landscape she sings about on Badlands."

OMG IS that the bass from that record?!!! Thats a desert island disc for sure !!! WOOOO
That's pretty much exactly what I'm dreaming of. One of these days, if/when I get back to gigging regularly again.
Beautiful wood, as always....
What is hybrid about this bass?
I own a wonderful Upton Hybrid Hawkes from ~2007. What is the scale length on these 5/8 basses please?

Do you see machine heads like this often? I bought a lot of antique cello necks recently and one has something similar but I’ve never really seen anything like them before.
If in doubt, add more clamps.
I hope you folks bought stock options in those wood clamp companies before they reported their quarterly earnings. You'd make a fortune.
Luthiers, like boatbuilders, can never have enough clamps..
