My beloved red Europa. I bought it directly at the Frankfurt Music Fair in 1991.

Many thanks for your replies.

Yes, this bass IS heavy, but after a couple of years I got used to it :-)

If you like to hear this bass in action visit me at MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/frankbackes

Killer groove- I've had it playing for the past hour or so as I sit here and do some work- very nice.

I'm pleased to hear that, Toby!

It's amazing to make someone on the other side of the planet nod his head :-)

That's what music is all about.

Funny you should say that Frank- I'm sitting here working this morning and my 3 year old daughter just walked up and asked me to play the 'Booty Shake" song!

She's a fan too =)

How sweeeet!

I send her a big hug and some kisses too! :-))))

I will dedicate the song to your daughter and rename it to 'Booty Shake'.

Hi,

I just found some old video tape of a gig I played with a jazz trio.

You can see and hear my Europa 6 in action here:
