  7. I have lots of basses.I even have a endorsment from a bass company that I can not say on here.I am going back to my BB1000S.I had a night off last week and went and set in with my sons band.He is a drummer.I took my BB1000S.People after the gig, players and non players would keep comeing up to me asking me about my bass.They said they never heared a bass that sounded so good.The other bass player was playing a Fender active JAZZ bass.When non players notice I take it to heart.Since 95% of the audince is not musicians.The bb1000s has such great sustain and is a great slap and walking bass.
  8. I have the BB3000S from the mid eighties. Pics were on a thread from a few days back.
