Here's my story. Feel free to post your own. It was 4 years ago in 2 months. I had been renting a sammick until this. I was in my local music store. There I saw it. A red Hohner B2a steinberger clone. I thought "Geddy". Being 11 not knowing they had a Geddy lee Sig model nor knew had the money for a rickenbacker I remembered seeing Geddy with a steinberger and fell in love with it. It had a red sparkle finish with a Db bridge. An active switch with a stack knob for controlling it. I bought it for $700 (well my dad did) I then saw some on ebay from $200-400 and realized we got screwed. It is my favorite bass as well because it has so many memories being my main bass from 6th-8th grade band. I do have a rickenbacker that i got last year but I still have too many good memories with my Hohner so that's still my fave.
