About Me

Let me start off by saying that I really dig unique and beautiful instruments. I’m guessing since you’ve found your way to this site that you feel the same way. It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned pro or a bedroom jammer, if you like amazing basses, you’ve come to the right place.

I’ve been in the music business all of my adult life. Currently I’m the Vice President for Springfield Music in Springfield, MO. While the products we sell are great, I kept finding myself lusting after instruments that just aren’t commonly available. I’ve always had a taste for gear that was just slightly out of the main stream.   Thus, FretSpot was born!

Currently, this site is focused on providing un-equaled service for those looking for F Bass bass guitars.  If this is you, I’d love to hear from you!

Musically Yours,

One thought on “About Me

  1. Hi.
    I just sent you an inquiry about F- bass..

    I watched your videos on youtube, (very informative and interesting!) I found your blog very interesting too; I love everything you have to say about beautiful things..
    I live in London, Ontario, not faraway from Furlanetto shop. Never been there though..
    I’ve been kind of passively watching F-basses for a while….., — until I noticed your ads on eBay the other day.

    Even travelled to see Caron’s playing in Toronto in Lula Lounge with Le Band 5-6 years ago, I believe. That was some unbelievable show! Sitting around 15 feet from Caron, the man never ever looked at his hand while playing!! The man is a bass genius.
    We even talked to Caron and took pictures with him..

    At that time I thought nothing, and did not care about F-basses at all. After seen Caron smacking 6-strings, who wants to play? NOBODY will play 6 string bass like this man!

    F-basses have very beautiful shapes, I like best. I like to see the strap button (BN class)about 10th fret, Fenders have it on 12th…
    I suffer too helplessly with G.A.S., (It’s got to stop…………lol.)

    Best regards.
    Lucien.
