Help from the Texans

  1. I'm going to be visiting the Dallas area tomorrow (July 31).
    I'm dropping my wife off in Grapevine, and will have the entire day to myself!!
    Where's a good place to go spend some time drooling over gear?

    I have two things on my agenda... gear shopping, and adding to the already enormous
    amount of ink on my body. (I'm from OkieHoma.. the ONLY state that tatooing is illegal!)

    Thanks in advance

    There'll be a GTG tomorrow in Lewisville at Pete Skjold's place, starting @ 11:00 am. There will be a lot of gear around

    Well you should deffinantly come to the DFW Bass Get Together tomorrow!

    Here's the pertinant info:

    Starts at 11am, tons of drool worthy gear to be there, plus about 40 players from Talkbass.

    Aside from that Larry Morgan music is a good one, its in Garland. Also, the Guitar Center on LBJ (635), has a Platinum Room run by my buddy Mike Henry. Hes got some really nice guitars (no basses, sorry), in the collection there, including a PRS Dragon :)

    PS - If you need help finding a Tattoo Artist, I can prolly send you in the right direction as well.
  4. Sounds like it could be dangerous to my pocketbook. Me down to just two basses and money sitting in the bank. I think I should try to swing by!!!:rolleyes:

    I'm still trying to finalize the design for my tat. I may or may not get it done tomorrow. I probably will :hyper: although I will feel like I am cheating on my normal artist (who is still working on covering my back!)

    Yeah, drop in! It would be a shame for you to be in the area the day of the GTG and miss it. Check the thread. There will be more drool worthy gear there than at any store on the planet, except maybe Bass NW or Bass Central.
