How did the guitar show treat you all? I met George Lynch of Dokken. Does that mean i am "rokken with dokken?" heee hee. I didn't see anything gear-wise i couldn't live without. I almost bought a used Fender MIM fretless, but my wife's 6th sence kicked in and she called me before I hit the ATM. Besides that nothing to cool basswise, a couple of overpriced MM Stingrays. some neat Pete Skjold (sp) stuff there too. The G&L Tributes changed their decal on the headstock and now look almost like US models except for a small 'tribute series' sicker. cool. see ya!
