My Schack Unique V signature bass

I proudly present “Red Zora”, my new Schack Unique V signature bass. She is a dream to play, sounds just fantastic and beside this she looks awesome.
My heartfelt thanks to Nico Schack from Schack Guitars for the best bass I’ve ever put my hands on.
As you can see, I already love it! 🙂Joerg & Rote Zora

At the London Bass Guitar Show with Schack Guitars

On March 12 & 13 the London Bass Guitar Show took place the Olympia London, organized by the Bass Guitar Magazine.
I was there with Nico Schack from Schack Guitars as exhibitor and we had a fantastic time there!
It was great to meet so many outstanding bass players on one spot and the feedback from them on our basses was beyond expectations. I’d like to thank everyone who visited us on our booth and special thanks to everyone involved at the Bass Guitar Magazine for organizing this great event! We will be back next year!
Here you find some pictures of our stand…

I hope you enjoy it!

Schack at Feel The Bass – review

The “Feel The Bass” show last Sunday was a huge success. Thanks a lot to all of you who visited the Schack booth. We are more than happy to get so much positive feedback on our basses, especially on our brand new features we showed there for the first time. That’s a great appreciation for what we are doing.

9 out of 11

This is how I love it: in the end of June I played 9 shows within 11 days from Calw in southern Germany to Kiel in the very northern part of Germany. This meant about 2.500 km and long hours on the road but although it meant a lot of fun and great moments on stage with TRUE COLLINS, Miss Kavila and Traumbild, a new German pop act that I’m on promotion tour with currently.
The highlight for me was the True Collins show feat. The Brass-Connection at the end of this “tour” in my home area. Now I take a break from gigs until next Saturday…

Hope to see you soon!

Schack Guitars – Video

I guess it’s no secret that I love my Schack Guitars basses and the guys who build them.
Since 1992, when I got my first Schack Guitars bass, I’ve checked out many basses made by other great luthiers and companies, but none of them made me want to switch over. I’m sure that our 22 years relationship will go on for quite a long time 😉

If you want know a bit about the history and the corporate culture of Schack Guitars and want to get a inside view of the work of master luthier Nico Schack, check out this video (click for English subtitle. Produced by Adstore):

Got a new bass!

As I allready mentioned in the last post, I’ve just picked up my new Schack Guitars bass!
I immediately fell in love with it when I picked it up at Schacks’s open house presentation last Sunday and I really got to have it. To me it sounds, feels, plays and looks amazing! Of course it sounds different from my other Schack basses but it’s exatcly that difference I was looking for. It’s “only” a 34″ scale but the low B string is awesome. You got to check it out yoursef! 🙂

Take care,

Review: 30th Anniversary of Schack Guitars – open house presentation

Nico Schack organized that open house presentation to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Schack Guitars. The company was found by his father Andy Schack and Nico took over business two years ago. It was a cool event with a lot of old and new friends of Schack Guitars. I was there to celebrate, to check out Nico’s latest creations and to play a little gig with one of my bands, Rock It. It was fun and in furthermore I fell in love with 5string that just was finished. And guess what? I picked it up the Schack’s shop today… 😉

Please check my next post for more info!

See you,
