Hey! Did any of you catch the Ibanez ad on page 43 in this month's Bass Player mag? It cracked me up. Has quotes from a bassist named Jason French from Switched. This is what he has to say about the Ibanez Soundgear Xtreme (Note: "Xtreme" should be pronounced in excited, reverb-laden monster truck announcer voice) bass: Rawk on, dude. He also goes on to say: Someone get this guy a Mark Hoppus bass. Sorry to bog this post down with technical speak. To each his own and all and sorry if this is your hero but it just made me laugh and I had to share. brad cook ps - look at his beard. I think he was shaving on the bus with an electric shaver and the driver slammed on the brakes "Whoops! Oh well..Rawk!" #76 in "Favorite Bus Driver Tricks Vol. 3"
