  1. So I have done it! I pulled the trigger... 2008 MIA P-Bass. WOW!!!:bassist: Did lots of searching and comparing... Came down to the MIA. It is a gift to me for a new job/career with a new company.

    sadly it does not live at my house...:bawl: yet:bag: as it is on layaway.

    had a "supervised visitation" today and got a pic. Not a great pic but an incredible bass.

    Sooooo happy about it.

  2. i envy you man!

    ive been gasing this exact bass!
    let us know how she sounds.
  4. have played it(in the store) through a full SVT-CL and a 8x10 fridge(cause I could), GK MB600(i think...the little head) powering... GK410, GK210, GK212, Traynor 8x8 and a Fender 2x15. Also a Mesa(forget the model) head with a Mesa 210 and 410. A Traynor 1x8 combo, and a 2x8 combo.

    And well.... amazing through them all. Keep the tone rolled at least half and it just thumps or bumps. the setup is perfect; straight with low action. Don't think I will touch anything at all.
