posted on the facebook confluence page...

NEVER PLAYED METAL FLATS BEFORE. HAD SOME GHS BLACK NYLONS ON A '76 P-BASS ONCE BUT THEY BURNED MY FINGERS DOING KISS BASS SLIDES !!! LOL. HAD THE OPORTUNITY TO PLAY BRIAN'S 4000 WITH THE FLATS. THE BASS WAS SO RESPONSIVE IT WANTED TO DO A SHUTTLE LAUNCH !!! REALLY POWERFUL TREBLE PICKUP...I WOULD BE VERY FRIGHTENED TO PLAY THAT THRU MY CONCERT RIG !!!!!

now i know where i heard that 4000 type tone before before...BTO's "not fragile" lp when fred turner does his soloing part in "free wheelin'" !!!
