Integrity is earned by and in the choices we make everyday.
I just turned my amp off after some diddleing, on guitar not Miley style. An American made amp. A 1967 Fender.
There's no reason your Ampeg isn't at least as good as this amp.
Sorry, I mean no GOOD reason. The same with GM cars..
I had a 1990 Ford Mustang and they seemed to take the same attitude. I tend to try to 200K plus out of a car. So they didn't get a second chance. Too bad.
I believe it's Hyundai who's running short and needs to build more production space. In Korea every car is a piece of national pride.
I don't always get that feeling with US cars.
Many of the "foreign" cars are being built in the US. By people making much less than those at GM. I think they are incented by more than just the money. I think they take pride in the cars they build as well as the fact they are supporting their familes. I think the folks at GM could take some pointers from Hyundai.
As we approach labor day between the burgers and beers remember what the holiday is about. Working for a living used to be a thing of pride. Pick up a Pedulla bass. Mike has every right to be proud of his basses.
I can't make a bass like that man. Heck, I'm not sure I can anything as well as that man makes a bass. But I try.
Paul Revera mentioned that having his name on an amp makes all the difference. Both of these men are working in the US today.
Have a happy labor day.
