    well... it was a good time. We played till 12:30ish... made $20 (weeks notice/weekday/still no drummer).

    The singer's girl and mine took lots of pictures and videoed it. As soon as I get copies from the singer I'll let y'all see how hideous I really am :meh:

    The bass looked (and sounded) great! I was gonna bring the fretted and at the last minute said screw it and only brought the fretless... :cool: man do I love that bass!!! I actually saw 2 bassists jaws drop when I uncased it :smug:

    Funny, that's not what I had the picture titled :eyebrow:

    Thanks Brian! Yeah the ladies of the band managed to capture the entire hour set on an old mini VHS camcorder. Soon as I can figure out how to cap it (or mail it off to y'all to do like you did with the NAMM stuff) I'll upload it. If not the video, once I get my copy tape, I'll pull the audio and slice up some MP3s.

    looking at that picture... I still miss that AMP BH-260 :( That was taken within 2 weeks of my driving into NYC to get my BagEnd cabinets. The cab in the picture is a Gauss loaded Ampeg Portaflex (that's why it's upside down :bassist: close up the big ol' port on the top where the tube head mounts).... shoulda never sold that either :eek: I think I let it go with the gauss in working order but in desperate need of tubes and caps for $150
