Personally, I just found this site about a year ago. Since then I have bought the following things I would have never bought without hearing/learning about them at TB. - Lakland 55-02. I had never heard of Lakland until coming to TB. $700 used. - 1974 Fender P bass. A TB-er knew I was looking for an older P and hooked me up with a beauty. Almost $2k - BBE Sonic Maximizer, SansAmp RBI, Korg Rack Tuner. What the hell were these things a few months ago? $500+ - Fender Geddy Lee and two MIA Jazz V's (I posted that I had small hands). $2k+ Different cables, strings, etc. $5000-6000 THIS YEAR!!!! I am playing and sounding better than ever but you ba$tard$ are killing me financially. Just kidding! Thanks for all of the great advice!
