    as others have said RIP to your pops. I agree, my dads been looking his age recently, and I dont get to seem that much these days. I didnt seem him for 3 years and when I did he looked so much older, I couldnt help but cry. Love your parents.

    On a brighter note. You have some absolutely stunning basses there. Those Thumb Basses always sound amazing. Ive yet to play/hear one i didnt like.

    I'm sorry for the loss of your father. He had very fine taste in instruments. I love those Warwicks and that blue Spector.

    Really sorry to hear about your dad, that must absolutely suck for you. :(

    On the plus side, he sounds like a great guy who left you a shitload of awesome basses - play them and cherish them, they'll help you remember him!

    Some of that stuff is just :holy:

    Sorry about your dad. It looks like he had great taste in basses though (and a very nice warwick collection). This may be a long shot but if there is any recordings of him playing I'm sure alot of us would like to hear it.

    Sorry about your dad dude. That's so tragic. But most importantly, you have his memory.

    From my personal experience, those old cats playing in worship bands, are some of the coolest guys to talk music with.
