New BASS amp day!

Postby Baron Von Machinenmann on Sun Dec 22, 2013 7:05 pm

I've been looking for one of these for years, she came to me friday from a local guy looking to find her a good home.
Mid 60's B18N, I'll get a definitive date over the holiday when I get her on the bench for a closer look.

Psyched!! :thumbsup: :cheers: :jam:

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

Apparently the stock one should be a Cleveland, I need to get some numbers to be sure. Interesting tidbits here:

Looks like a match made in heaven.
Hopefully all will be good with your "new to you" rig.

I've been in a bit of a musical rut lately from a guitarists viewpoint so I figured learning some material from a bassist's perspective would take me down some different roads. :cheers:
