    Played on this beauty today for the first time in a while. It’s got flat wounds on it and man, does it sound great. I just love it. I’ve named it Kirk.

    I have a Douglas sunburst with flatwounds, and agreed, these are great instruments. I want a fretless one of these real bad, but they don't have fret markers and I doubt I can play it in tune. The other sleeper bass at Rondo is the Hadean solid body uke bass. I grabbed a b-stock some time ago and I love the sound of it.

    From the title and considering his age. I was fearing this is a Kirk bought the farm thread. I'm Happier now.

    Sorry if I scared you. Here’s a great Kirk Douglas scene from a movie called The Big Sky.
