    That's right. Me. :)

    I start after I get back from the Dallas/Ft. Worth TB getogether. They were trying to just get me in the door, so I didn't exactly get the job I wanted (which was customer service/artist relations) - I'm starting on the actual assembly line. Yup, little old me will be putting your amps together for you. They are going to try to move me into the customer service position after a while, but this will at least get my foot in the door and learn the ropes.

    The only downside: I have to be there at 6AM, Monday through Thursday. That means I will have to wake up at 4:30 AM just to get there on time. :eek: But I will be off by 4PM every day, and have a three day weekend, every weekend. Not to mention DISCOUNTS!!!!

    So I guess now I am the official Boogieman on TB. :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    It's about time! I've always been surprised that you didn't work for 'em, especially with that rig of yours. :D

    Free amps for all!

    Maybe you could organize some sort of deal for TB members.

    That's great...congratulations. And best of luck!
  14. Congratulations! You know, I have a bit of a soft spot for the MB folks. I bought a brand new Bass 400 w/ Road Ready 2x15 and a matching case for the head in the late '80s and they STILL send me a Christmas card to this day. Best of luck!
