Any pictures of Marvin Isley with his Series II?
I remember seeing him holding a bass as big as he was on one album back in the 1970's

Oh, my goodness...
Marvin Isley is what you get as a bassist after being involved with the legendary Jimi Hendrix,and Hendrix's influences on younger brother Ernie Isley.
What you get, is the prelude, and interest from a Bass player, to an Alembic bass player... pushing the infancy, and outer-most reaching of a true legitimate FUNK band.
Marvin's bass playing exhilarating, and refreshingly tactful as: "climbin up the ladder".
...and my all-time most favorite Isley song: "Voyage To Atlantis"
No woman would refuse me in "slow-dancing on this song... (because that song was a big help...) "
RIP Brother Marvin.
Peace, and Love

A picture speaks a thousand words...
Marvin Isley, with an Alembic bass... while recording: "GO FOR YOUR GUNS" LP (1970's).
Thank you Marvin, and thank you Alembic Inc. with all my heart, for it was the parts, that made it whole.
Peace and love,
(Message edited by toma_hawk01 on June 13, 2010)
