  1. Well, I noticed that there have been about a million "I got a new bass" threads in the last couple of weeks, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and get a new bass, too. So I bought an MTD Heir 5.:D Here's the really sweet part: the previous owner put in a two-band Aguilar preamp! I'm so freaking excited! Hopefully, it will get to me by this Wednesday or Thursday, so I'll post my thoughts on it then.

    Please post some pictures if possible! I love looking at other peoples basses. Bring on the GAS
  3. Let me know how the preamp works out in your Heir. I have an Heir and I've toyed with the idea of installing one, so I'd be interested to hear how it helps.

    c'mon, where are all the pics?!


  5. I'll be sure to let you all know my initial thoughts once I get it. I've never actually played an Heir before, but I've played Kingstons, and they have the most comfortable neck I can think of. I think I'll really like it.

  7. here's the pic from the auction. It isn't very good, but it lets you see what it looks like.
  8. Ok, the picture won't load for some reason. Probably because I know nothing about computers. Sorry. :(

    Don't you love it when previous owners upgrade their already good basses to even better, then turn around and sell them, only to find out that they can't recoup the cost of their upgrades?:rolleyes:

    Still waiting for the pics

  11. Sorry, man, but but I can't post the picture of it for some reason. If it helps any, the picture is really bad. You can't even see the flame on the top. Once I actually get it I'll see if I can borrow a digital camera from somebody and post some better ones. I'll try posting it one last time though.

    I know it's been said before, but where are those pictures?
  16. Come on, everybody, I don't even have the bass yet. Like I said, I'll post pics as soon as I can. And, to get you all off my back, if there's one more "let's see a picture!" reply, I won't post ant pics. So HA!;)
