    I also got Cort GB74 in the past, but with the old pre, you got the brand new GB75

    I now own a perfect reproduction of the Fender Precision of the man himself

    Welcome to TB.
    Nice to hear from bass players in South America.
    You must know of Sergio Groove?
    I met him here in the Boston area and got to hear him play
    at some clinics.

    Hola Manuel,

    I was born in Copiapo, Chile but left the country when I was 6 years old. I live in the US (Florida).

    My first bass was a Cort too!
  15. Welcome to TB. Nice basses!!!!

    My wife lived in Santiago for a few years. I hope to visit our beautiful country sometime. We travel to South America relatively often, but have not made it to Chile yet!

    PS My brother-in-law was involved in what was called Chile's 'Woodstock' back in the 70's, and recently produced ad directed/shot a film about it that was featured in a recent Film Festival in Santiago. That was before your time, but it looked like quite a festival. His name is Gary Fritz if you want to search to find it.

    Because you are not close friends with him and he is only an acquaintance, "tu hablas" is improper. You would say, "se habla" instead....as long as you're practicing :)
