  1. ...I just found out that Status is located in my home town!....how could i have not been aware of this, i feel a bit down, because i can almost gurantee that i would'v brought a bass from them if i'd know wen i was looking for my 5 :)
    oh well :)
    got some saving to do :)

  2. yeah, i recently found out F basses are built in my home town. i'll never be able to afford one, so it's not much of a letdown.
  3. Alembic is only about 50 miles from where I'm at. Maybe if I sold my kidney on the black market...

  4. Hey Si-bob I think Ashdown Engineering is in your hometown as well - you gonna start saving from one of their amps now as well???;)

    I knew this! Seriously, I remember my girlfriend went on a course in a college in Chelmsford about 10 years ago and she told me that she had actualy met some people there, who made basses out of carbon fibre in Colchester. I went to pick her up in the car and she took me to Colchester for lunch - quite a nice place - for Essex!! ;)
  6. Kinal is in my home region..
  7. Heineken Beer is made in my hometown.. :p

    I'm about a half hour away from Modulus, Ten minutes away from Ransom guitars
  16. Carvin is only 20 minutes from my house. Both MIM and MIA Fender are about a hour and a half from me. I tried to find the Fender Ensenada BC Mexico factory but couldn't find it... Ensenada is one messed up town. there are many fine guitar makers located here in Southern California. Way to many to list....
