Did you make the decision to buy a particular bass from information or recommendations on TBDB? How much influence did TB have on the process? The intent of this thread is to find out how much influence TBDB has had in the decision making process to buy a bass. The poll will be geared towards the influence on the purchase of a new bass, but if TB has influenced the purchase of an older or used bass, or influenced your purchase in other ways feel free to post remarks. This is not to be an A is better than B thread. I had not heard of TalkBass until Wil mentioned it when I was starting the process to get my Cleveland. So TB had little to no influence on my decision.
