Greg UNDERSTOOD Basses and guitars! He Made a bass for me in the mid 80's in the bsement of Margaret's house after he closed MIDNIGHT MUSIC. The duplicate bass he built for me took him 24 hours to build. He took a year to build mine! He took the parts to Warmouth, when he went to the west coast; he came back and finished it. It took a while for Greg's idea's to gestate. It was always worth the wait. I always chided him for that! I still have the bass. He laminated it 25 years before he added the mahogany wings. He was a truly wonderful person; so fun to be around. ALWAYS humorous and had a great idea or joke or story to tell. I called him a couple of years before his passing. Just to touch bass and get him to sign my bass. i wouln't let him sign it because, back then he was using one of those silver ink pens. He always gave me grief about that and did again when I called. Since I moved from Atlanta in 1988, I didn't know he made the big time! I'm glad he did. He earned and deserved it! I MISS HIM!
