    Most everything has sold but my EBMM. She would make a great Christmas gift. It`s practically brand new, so much so that you could pass her off as a new bass ! LOL...... I`m so close to getting this all behind me, just need to move her to finish with the final costs....PEACE and Merry Christmas to all, AJ

    I did`t list individual prices yet because I`m not really sure what I`ll be asking yet,please give me a day or two. For those that already P`md me I`ll will be responding to you shortly, sorry I left this part out in the original post. This is not easy for me to do...
    As a few of you know about 6 months ago on the way back to NYC from a gig in Philly we were hit by a drunk driver. In that accident I lost my brother and best friend who was also our lead guitar. We played for fun because we loved music and loved jammin together. Well it stopped being fun for me that night. I`m done......... Please don`t think I`m asking for your sympathy, I just wanted you to know why I`m selling my gear. Plenty of pics and more info upon your request. I would like to sell it all as a package deal but I know that will be tough so lets talk. All my gear is in immaculate shape, I`m OCD that way. Nothing was ever abused, throw around or banged up.

    I %$#^#^$'n hate drunk drivers with a passion. Should be an instant capital offense. Sorry for your loss. There is a thread where a lady was asking about effects pedals as a present for her bass player boyfriend, you might be able to unload the zoom there.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I no longer play bars/lounges because I can't stand being
    around drunks anymore.

    This was a real tragedy and I can understand why you don't play anymore.

    Best of luck with the sale.
    Take care,
    - :cool:

    Wow. We ALL feel for you, Twisted.

    Just remember that the therapeutic effects of playing a guitar by yourself will be there for you if you ever feel like picking one up again.

    God be with you.

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    Really sorry man. I understand why you want to sell everything and step away from playing.

    Hopefully one day you will feel good about playing again.

    All the best.

    Really sorry for your loss man.
    I quit drinking 8 years ago as I found myself making bad decisions in life.
    I also realized that I had driven drunk many times and that I couldn't live with the consequence of hurting an innocent victim (although I never had any problems).;

    Loosing a brother?
    Can't even imagine what that would be like.
    Who knows, maybe down the road you will return to playing; wonder what your brother thinks looking down on all of us now?
    Good luck; I met some folks at meetings that needed someone to talk to (or yell at) to help sort things out.

    A lot of AWESOME and KIND thoughts from all of you. Thanks all so much for your support, means more to me then my words can express.

    On a lighter note, will someone please take this EBMM off my hands. This bass is practically brand new. Would make a great gift, you could even pass it off as new ! LOL
