    A few weeks ago I posted a thread talking about needing a new bass and not being able to afford one and why I lost my first one. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/i-miss-my-bass-guitar-929275/
    Anyway that day I got a messege from greg saying he had a bass for me if I didnt mind short scale. I dont since my last was a 22 fret Cort Bass. This one is 20 and I love it.
    It is my favorite neck i have ever played on because of the thin profile of it. I have yet to play it through an amp (bought one from a friend and have to go pick it up.)
    He modded this one by putting a pick up in the bridge position. Anyway Greg is a great guy and I am absolutely grateful for this as he sent it 100% free of charge!!!!! This is what it looks like. I will post a pic of me playing it as soon as I find my camera!

    I really like this Bass, it is probably my favorite Guitar I have owned of any kind.
    I really like how the neck plays. I am hoping to learn how to play NIRVANAs entire catalog of songs and some other Grunge/Alternative stuff. I have learned part of IN BLOOM already which is one of my favorite songs! Thanks guys!!!

    Wow thats pretty awesome, even sending it free and all-take care of it.

    Makes me think maybe its time for a few bass give aways for the holiday season, there were a few years back here.
