  1. Will there be any bass stuff at the Arlington guitar show next month? Just wondering if I should plan on driving down.

    Pete Skjold is going to have a booth there, and I am sure he will have some Schroeder cabs, too.

    I am trying to get the HCBF guys out there to try out his basses and the Schroeder cabs.
     
  3. Pete who???

    I talked to Pete a while back and he said he was going to be out there. I didn't know he was handling the Schroeders... that's cool!!! Pete is a current cause of GAS pain. I'm now without a fretless... and.... well you get the idea..

    If anybody sees an old Mesa/Boogie Bass 130 there, get it for me. I'm serious. Anything up to $2000 is fair game, otherwise give me a call. (PM me for my number if you're going)

    I'm serious. Really. Serious. No joking.

    Hey, what's the story on this guitar show? I hadn't heard about it. I'm in the area, and would like to attend. Any information would be great.

    guitar shows are great
    i've gotten some of my best deals there
     
  12. I was there... where were you??

    Pete's booth was THE place to be. The LowEnd booth was awesome as well. But Pete's new basses (with his preamp & pickups) sounded amazing.!!!

    Pete's basses rock, But the coolest bass was the used-to-be-a-six wide five-string Zon at the Low End.

    The Vigier basses at the Salwender booth also sounded great. Of course, they were being played by Trip through a Glock rig, so that might have had something to do with it.

    Well, thanks to backed up plumbing, I got to spend some quality time with a sewer machine Saturday. By the time I was done, it was 4:00 and I needed a shower.
     
  16. well that's a bunch of crap (yep... that was lame!!)

    Sorry to hear about your misfortunes. But I hope it all got fixed without to much problem or damage.
