Kenny's 1974 Fender Bass for Sale!

Kenny Hill is selling his 1974 Fender Precision Bass from his days in his 1980's punk band.  

The Bass is a sunburst finish and very lightweight, only 7 1/2 lbs!  
There are some dings on the side/back and almost all the parts are original.  
Bass comes with its original hard shell case.

Kenny says due to the nature of the times, he doesn't remember much about playing it.  

Give a home to this bass, and make some memories of your own!

Mark Goldenberg & Eric Skye

Eric Skye and Mark Goldenberg are two of the most interesting and satisfying fingerstyle guitarists I know. Recently they've been collaborating as a duo and are soon to release a CD "Artifacts". On the 18th they did a secret show at the amazing studio of my oldest buddy Chuck Pyle, hidden in the Santa Cruz mountains. Eric plays a SCGC steel string and Mark plays a Hill performance Series he got just a few weeks ago. It was an amazing collaboration, completely original and unique. Great music! You've gotta hear these guys wherever you can. I'll let you know when the CD is released.
