That Matsumoku is envy inducing! Got any sound samples?

I had a separate post on a walking bass line for Mr. Moto, and my version is here:

I used the Matsumoku bass for this, with the bridge PU at first and then the neck PU after the piano break part. Since the neck pocket has been somewhat deformed from string tension over the years, I had to put a shim under the neck to lower the action. To reduce the tension I put light roundwounds (45-95) on it. I was afraid the E would be floppy, but it's OK.

If I'd stop buying old guitars to fix, I might actually learn to play.
