1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Previously Owned Gear:
    Sold this one a couple weeks ago: an Austin P-Style Bass. I got it as a beginner. Cheap, but sturdy. Destroyed the electronics after my friend and I thought it'd be a good idea to dismantle it and paint it.

    Also recently laid an Ampeg BA115 to rest. I blew the head, the bass blew the speaker, and some moron running electricity at a gig blew the power. That thing died pretty brutally.
    G.A.S. List:
    I'd love a Musicman Stingray 5-string. Those things punch your face off and I love that.

    I also want to endorse some companies. I need some help, brothers. (Update: The awesome folks at DR Strings have agreed to throw me a bone and sponsor me! Thanks to Steve Bello and DR Strings.)
