    I'm posting on the Bass board usually, but thought I'd dip in here to get feedback.

    I've been out of music for a long time, but lately caught the GAS again, so in the last 5 weeks, I have bought a twangstick (Fender US Ash Telecaster w/Maple neck) [​IMG] , and then being BASSically a BASS player, I bought a Lakland Skyline 44-02 [​IMG], and then figured that I would need a practice amp, that in a crunch could be used at a small to moderate gig, possible through the board, and maybe freestanding, so I picked up a Ashdown Electric Blue 15-180 Bass Combo Amp [​IMG]

    Within 3-4 months tops, I hope to get into a head/cabinet, but until my credit cards heals markedly, I'm at the end of the GAS spree!

    Is there no limit to the FUN? :cool:

    Thanks man!

    Actually things have been pretty tight for the last 5 months (various reasons) but I've managed to hang onto most of my stuff.

    Hopefully things are like you said, on the upstroke! The more upstroke the sooner I get my head above water!

    You know what they say, "What doesn't drown you makes you a better upstroker!".

    :D

    Joe.
