Well, after much deliberation and about 2-3 weeks spent trying to deal with Guitar Center (I wanted to either buy a LMII or a CMD-102P) I gave up and went by my favorite bass store ever, Atlanta Bass Gallery. I tried a number of Phil Jones Bass combos (the Briefcase and Suitcase, I believe) and while impressive, they just weren't for me. Looked at a SWR 10" combo, also not quite my thing. Then I tried a Genz-Benz Neo-Pak 3.5 and HOT DAMN. I was truly sold when I heard the price, too. The GB 4x10 I tried was surely out of my budget, so I started poking around looking at various 2x10s and 1x12s. Almost immediately fell in love with an Aguilar GS112 - well, actually, it's tweed/blonde cousin. So now I have a great little, punchy, loud rig I can take with me to college without breaking my back (something that can't be said of my Ampeg B100r) or bank. Now I just hope I don't have to get thrown out of the dorms for making too much noise... Anyway, just thought I'd share with you all, my fellow bass enthusiasts. And I'm sure anyone in the Atlanta are can speak to the awesomeness of Jim and Darren. Just a kick-ass store, with an awesome selection and prices flexible enough for a high school student!
