Jason started out with Spoiler and Elan Basses. Then on a visit to the Alembic Shop he had the opportunity to play a Series II bass. Then all his basses were Series II going forward.

Hi favorite specs were:
Europa in 4, 5 & 10 string
Flame Maple Top
Maple/Purpleheart necks
Cone Peghead
Sheer Black on body and front of Peghead
Clear finish on the neck and back of Peghead
Series II electronics
