SWEET LADY PARIS

Paris Paris Paris. Every time I visit you, I fall deeper in love with you. You never stop being romantic. Paris does that… it makes life so romantic. Every corner you turn, something takes your soul on a journey. So inspired. Until we meet again, au revoir!

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful in your entire life?

Curtis Novak makes some of the best pickups out there, but he also possesses a wealth of knowledge regarding guitar history. He once had the opportunity to shed some light on Herbie Flowers’ “infamous Jazz Bass.” Infamous, that is, not only because it’s one of the earliest known examples of the Fender Jazz Bass––with Herbie himself insisting he purchased it in late 1959––but also because it has one of the wildest finishes you’ll ever see! 

The red, white and blue motif is courtesy of Lake Placid Blue (NO CLEAR!) over Fiesta Red over primer. Also note the switch, which was a built-in fuzz effect! This bass is exceedingly interesting, and you can read Curtis Novak’s thoughts and observations here.

little drop of poison
TOM WAITS

i like my town with a little drop of poison
nobody knows they’re lining up to go insane
i’m all alone
i smoke my friends down to the filter
but i feel much cleaner after it rains

and she left in the fall
that’s her picture on the wall
she always had that little drop of poison
