    I just got my most current Bass Player mag in the mail today. I was reading the letters to the editor and I noticed a name that sounded familar. He wasn't to pleased with the BP review of the Wishbass........

    I won't out him, but he should man up and take credit for his work!

    Was it The Qintar?
     
  6. I had a question published in there.

    I was the one who noticed the cover was mint green.

    Seriously, it's in the September issue I think.

    No, no and no.

    The Qintar doesn't read BP, he makes Chuck Norris read it to him.

    Give me a hint. Was the (BP) review of the Wish pro or con?

    It was con, but in a very gentle way. They tried hard not to offend, but he had a bass that was unplayable past the 7th fret due to damp weather, among other things.

    I noticed they followed or friends E-mail with 2 supportive ones. Still at it.

    Unless I misheard, I thought that the letter writer was at the last DC GTG??? But if that's the case, I don't see the letter in the online version of the mag....

    I didn't see the letter on you link. In the Issue w/ Tom Hamilton on the cover, there are 3 letters under the title "Wish Foundation", we're talking about the first one.
