The email message below came from Studio Stu, the only (as far as I know) virtuoso washtub bass jazz musician who performs on his own, personal instrument, the Studivarious! We ran a feature on Stu in Innerart's Charliebits. Stu lives and performs mostly in the upstate New York area near Woodstock. Check him out if you ever have a chance.
