    You don't "own" it until we see a pic of it in your hands while you salivate all over it..

    That's only because of your sweet deal on your new one! Now how does that make the rest of us feel? If you are going to bring out the treats, you must have enough for the class! :crying: :bawl:

    Yeah, "The Stryper Bass". Boy, is that thing in for a shock.

    The only pic's I have are the ones Tracy sent. Once I get past the anxiety stage of internet deals and it's in my hands I'll get her posted.

    That really was a 3 year search. Those Ash/ Maple '59 burst's are TOUGH to find used.

    Other than this...Clubbass had one that was beat and stupid priced....then it think one of the guys on here dumped a NICE one that I missed before that (floodshone? maybe).

    On another note....Tracy is sick about selling it. New baby....bills....downtime between tours...tight money forced it and he's not happy. Nothing at all to do with any dissatisfaction with Roger or the instrument. He wants that made clear.
