Hey guys, ok this isa my first post so take it easy on me!! I thought i'd just introduce myself, and say, check out your local guitar company!! I just ordered my new bass, and the locals seem the way to go. Because, i reckon there arn't many companies in the world, where you can walk into the factory, meet the 4 dudes running it. Choose the exact wood your bass is going to be made out of and just having them there to help you. So it's cool. And i guess I'll See yas aorund posting!
