    I got a bass guitar again.

    An ash body SX J with maple on maple. Nicely made and all set up OOTB.

    Everything seemed familiar until I tried to play. I cannot do the basic 1234 left hand position anymore :crying: I can only do 1244 :(

    I guess I'll have to work on finger flexibility.

    But hey, I can still play Anarchy in the UK :bassist:


    Behringer BX1200 combo :bag:
    Alesis SR16 drum machine
    Digitech X Series synth wah
    Korg tuner and 'nome
    Hal Leonard books

    and my other weapon of choice
  2. very very nice. I love that bass in the SX series, definately the most impressive to me. I think Ill buy one in the future to replace tmy Peavey jazz im about to give to my girlfriend... But of course, those pickups are going to go, and make way for some Barts or BassLines... Also a preamp too... God, Im a picky sumbitch when it comes to my basses, I swear im like a Vegan in a steak house ordering a vegetable plate...

    explain to me why there's a gun in the pick... :eyebrow:

    Nice bass though, very nice actually. I've seen alot of bass's with maple necks and yours is making me want one more, I might have to get one someday. :hyper: My god I want so many bass's and amps.

    Let's see ... a bass with a big long neck, a gun ... bet he's got a motorcycle, too.

    Guns are my real passion. Actually has many parallels with bass guitars and GAS

    $200 to $1000 will get you in the door

    $1000 to $2000 is for pros

    $2000 and up is for members only ;)

    No motorcycle. Just a bike :)

    Hmm... Let me guess.

    20 inch stainless steel barrel, free floated, varmiter upper, AR-15. Probably a bushmaster, RRA, or something hand built from a kit, not bad. Looks like a x10 scope, not a bad piece of glass either.

    ETA: Maybe even a Colt or an Armalite.
  10. sigh....Ted Nugent would be proud.

    Daytona, you almost got it :)

    16" varmint bull bbl. It's a Colt with a DPMS upper. The scope is a Leupold of course (coz I'm just so durned "tactical")

    BG Man: bridge pup @ 100%, neck @ 75%, tone @ 50% and a touch of envelop filter will make this baby funkier than a basketful of dirty socks.

    If the Behringer had a little more thump, the SX will probably be able to sing better.

    I'm not going to invoke a political discussion, this is a bass forum.

    However I will say that my firearms have killed less people than Ted Kennedy's car.

    So is that what a typical picture for a biker-bar band looks like?
