    Nice.

    Congrats on the new bass. If giving into peer pressure gets you that, then your peers must not be too bad of influences. ;)

    Oh, please.. I was quietly playing my little R-5 grooves while you were dazzling the store. :D
    Great to meet a fellow TB'er amongst the GC wankers though!
     
  8. Hey Woodchuck. Is that by chance the Metro that was at the ATL Guitar Center? If so I played that bass and its killer.

    Great score.

    I'm not Woodchuck, but since I just met him at the Atlanta GC, I'm gonna answer for him and say yes.

    Are you kidding? A metro for $1195?! if you didn't buy that thing I'd have flown out and smacked you upside the head :p

    And besides, we all want to sound good, right? ;)

    Here's the story:
    I went to GC on Thursday to get it, and they said the bass was sold, and that someone was coming to pick it up. Well, that person's credit card didn't clear. I went in yesterday to buy it, and it was behind the counter, and someone was coming in to get it. I went in GC this morning, and it was still there! I asked what happened, and they said the guy didn't show up. I took that as a sign. :bassist:
    On a side note, I found out about the guy that sold it to them. He's getting a divorce, and since he doesn't play bass for a living, his wife forced him to liquidate ALL of his bass gear. This was one of the pieces he sold to GC. I feel REALLY bad about that.

    I've heard from some attorneys that those things aren't as concrete as we think.
     
  19. Feel sorry for him, but LUCKY You!!!! Congratulations!!!
     
  20. If GC is selling it for that, what must he have sold it for? Ouch.
