    Hi Ben,

    that's a nice bass you got there!

    I didn't get a chance to play the GBs at the show, though Michael tried one of them out, I believe - I've played GBs before though, and was really impressed with how well made they are. The electronics were a bit scary though - +/- 18db????

    Those photos were all taken by Bud LeCompte - the 'moderator' of alt.guitar.bass - he and his wife Linny were at the show, and took those rather fun piccies of Michael and I...

    cheers!

  3. Yeah, the electronics being 18v +/- 18db are just a tad scary at first as one slight movement changes the entire tone... but you get use to them as you play about with the sweepable mid and treble... and if u think the GB IV's are scary you should see the Rumor model electronics :eek: ...

    Thanks for your reply..
