    It seems many here are on an un-ending quest for...............?
    I would love to hear from anyone whose search is over. Is that possible? Are we being gluttons? It's easy to get caught up it it- I'll admit to it. Perhaps this extends to greater societal problems: Divorce rate, porn addiction, consumerism, debt/bankruptcy, etc.
    I'm getting way deeper than I intended to. Anyway....
    My rig: Schecter Stiletto Studio 5 (with Chromes), Hartke VX3500 combo amp. Both bought used.
    Playing my $100/person bowling alley bar gig, what more do I need? Sounds good to me and anyone who ever cares to listen and comment, my guitar stays in tune and amp is plenty loud.

    Just something that came to mind today.

    I won't say I don't look at the newer models and drool, but I've stuck with this setup for quite a while.

    Very satisfied with my amp - Epifani UL902C with Bergantino AE410's. Have two cabs but almost always use one. Not looking at any other - don't look at amps for sale any more. Basses? Well, I am very satisfied with the basses I have, but have to admit I like trying out a new bass now and then. I always return to my 3 or 4 workhorses, however. Three jazz basses, one single coil precision and one classic 70's precision. The jazzes are pretty interchangeable, the precision each have a very unique sound that I like at times. I really need to sell off a few, as I have others that I really don't used much.

    I haven't gigged a ridiculous amount (only 21), but I'm very happy with my rig. GK RB700ii with a GK Neo 212ii. I would love to add another 212, but I really don't need it. Bass wise MIM Jazz and an upgraded older Cort P are my main two(5 others) and the only bass I am really considering is a Ray34.

    I'm very satisfied with my rig and setup right now. Is this odd? Not really, it's quite simple:

    My main amp, a vintage tube svt with a 4x10 ampeg cab, serves as a sort of "table" whose top has been completely covered with family pictures.

    My two twin reverb amps are stacked, serving as decoration in my living room. My super reverb is also in the living room, with the phone resting on top of it alongside a trophy from car racing.

    My basses (10 as of right now, I think) are all inside the closet.

    You see, the secret to being satisfied with the gear you have is to simply stop playing it. Otherwise, you'll never be satisfied.

    Hell, I have 5 wah pedals from when I was looking for the tone, all dunlop--this pretty much sums it all!

  6. FWIW: I'm very happy with all my bass gear - however, that doesn't mean I'm out of GAS. :D

    I'm happy with my rig, but I'm always thinking about trying different stuff.

    Does that answer the question?

    My main rig was purchased between 2004 and 2006. While I have used other rigs once in a while I always come back to this. I have been very satisfied with the rig. So I guess the answer is yes :D

    I'm happy with mine, wish my flats were a lot more broken in, which will come through time I guess, but other than that I'm good. My amp when plugged into a PA is definitely loud enough for small gigs, which is really all I need it to do.

    It's an illness. I have it, I hate it, I love it.

    I am satisfied with my setup.......this month.

  20. I'm pretty close to being happy with my Aguilar amps (AG500 & TH350) and Bergantino HD410 cabinet. It gives a really upper mid focused punch with a tight low end, and the bright switch on the AG500 just helps my Fender Jaguar cut through everything in the mix. Looking for a good lightweight cab to pair with the TH350...maybe a Berg CN112?
