    Im about to get one and I wanted to know who else is in love with this bass.

    Also, what do you guys think a good price for one of these is?

    Peace

    Thanks for the link, but now that its working I see that its a page Ive visited several times before. Ive even e-mailed the owner about buying his bass.

    Im not exactly going for the early Nirvana vibe, but I cant say that it wasnt an inspiration for buying the bass. I might swap out the pickups for some EMG Vintage Jazz models (of course keeping the origionals) and run it through the Aguilar outboard preamp so I can get it to sound more like my Valenti. Im not really going for that sound so much as the general vibe of a bass looing as sweet as that.

    Peace

    It kind of has a metal look to it, what kind of music are you playing know. 5 weeks till the release of the STP greatest hits record, are you going to get it.

    Iim playing a lot of heavy rock now. Some stuff deals with different rythms and times, but nothing too out there.

    I think the bass will work great, especially if I use the Aguilar pre with it.

    Im gonna have to look into that STP release of course. (Interesting side note.... I was looking into having a Model T style bass thrown together for me when I stumbled across the IBE.)

    Ok, I sent in the money on tuesday night but there are some problems because the department manager at the Chicago GC doesnt want to send it to me.

    Too bad I already paid, my manager said to do it, and his store's manager said to as well.

    Hopefully when I call tomorrow I will hear them say it is sent.

    Peace
