Looking real good, Jazzy
You never posted the pic of your "loaded" Smart Car though, and I'm dying to see it
I need to find a tiny, fuel-sipping, bass-friendly alternative to my Mercury anchor ...errr... Sable wagon.
:-)
And Jacko's right about the shirt too!

I didn't take my smart car this gig as I had other people to carry in the car. Maybe I will just load it up for a photo.

Here is a clip on you tube from the gig. Sound is not great but you can get an idea of how my Europa sounds.

Really good stuff Jazzy- my 4 year old daughter and 1 year old son wandered in while it was playing and had an impromptu groove party, so I think that means they like it too!

Thanks Georgie Boy, that Europa has a really impressive sound to it when you stand near the bass cab. The neck is very comfortable, it balances well and it's quite a heavy bass too. The previous owners have really looked after it as it is spotlessly clean.

Well Keavin, I was born in UK so it kind of goes with the territory and good ol' Victor Wooten has a bald spot and is still sporting dreads... but i know what you mean. If I start going bald I will shave the lot off and make a wig hahaha.

Thanks again for you good words.
