    I think he wants it to be another "f-style" thread: long pages of nothing for making us painstakingly GASsing for it, then gorgeous pictures on page 3 or 4... ;)

    Blew your cover, Fred? ;) :smug:

    Nice bass Gilsonite... the table seems to be walnut, but what's the body wood?

    Oh yeah, I remember that bass! I lusted after it from the moment it showed up until it got sold....sadly I'm far too poor to even dream of owning one of Mike's basses, but that one...that one hurt.

    Lucky bastid.

    ;)

    Oh yeah, and Fred, no pics, no one believes you have it. Post 'em or face the disbelief. :D
     
  17. I think I find myself gassing for another wenge-necked MTD. You're all evil! :scowl:
