    First off, I know a few of you Bass Central guys are here, so let me say thanks for the great service when I visited today. You guys are fantastic! I walked in, said my budget is X dollars, I prefer 4 string, whaddya got? Seconds later, I was hooked up to an amp with about six basses to try!

    Ok, I guess I have been living under a rock because I have never seen such an array of lovely high-end basses before today. Such lovely Wals, Alembics, and Warwicks.....oh my.

    The real standout today was the Lakland Joe Osborne. Sunburst finish, 4 string, passive. Very nice! The Warwick Thumb Bolt On was an unpleasant surprise - neck too thick. MTD Kingston was very nice.

    Anyway, thought I would share these pointless ramblings.
  2. too bad it's in flordia....all i hear is excellent things about there. I would love to go. Oh well. If you's ever wanna expand, you can always make a store in...

    <--- :D

    Hey just a suggestion! :rolleyes:

    I was looking for the last chapter of the story, but it wasn't there!
  4. Darn, you picked a day I was off!!!

    Well, you probably met Neal, he's Dirty Road Cola here on the boards. Glad you had a good experience, which one did you leave with? ;)

    Next time you're gonna stop by, let me know!! (That goes for all y'all... :D)

    I was just in Florida a few days ago! I briefly thought of Bass Central, but I didn't know it was in Florida! Ain't nothin in Texas but mars music and guitar center (which I ain't dissin' or nothin', but the selection isn't as good as a freakin' store full of basses!) Boy to I feel like crap.....

    Unfortunately, I did not find any basses that were in the "must have" category. The Joe Osborne was VERY nice, though, and may eventually be a part of my collection, but not in the immediate future.

    I mostly wanted to relate to all that this is a way cool bass place to visit and is worth the time to find it!

    Gard, maybe you can answer this for me. The Joe Osborne bass was very nice indeed, but had an odd sound quality to it. I swear it sounded almost like it was chorused. Is this a design factor? Strings? The bass had a very warm sound, but I couldn't help but wonder if the odd sound was normal or not.
