... and they wouldn't sell it to me. GAH! At the brand spanking new GC in San Francisco (not that impressive, except for the displays) they have a Mesa/Boogie Bass 130 under glass. Oh my god, I've been looking for one of these for almost 10 years. It's covered in snake skin, and was made by hand by Randall Smith back in 1970. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I track down a sales guy, and I'm told it's not for sale. WHAT?! Apparently this is one of Randall Smith's personal amps and it's for display purposes only. Ye gods, why must you torment me so?! GAH!! They only made about 100-200 of these; "they" meaning Randall Smith and possibly Mike Benedelli, Mesa's first employee. This is the first time I've seen one in person, and I couldn't even touch it. Man, I am hurting right now. I would have paid ALOT of money for one of these things, and now I want one more than ever. :scowl: Sales dude says he'll put the word out and try to find another one - but I've been looking for close to a decade, so I don't think he's going to have much more luck than I have. Life is so unfair. I think I may just have to kill myself.
