    Hey everyone... it's been a while since I stopped by so I thought I'd come back and say hi... I've got some new gear since I was last here, including an Epi Les Paul bass (one of my GAS items) :hyper: Anyhoo, I was wondering if any of you could help me-

    The band I play in recently recruited a new guitarist. We were jamming at his house and apparently this kid's dad was a musician as well- hanging on the walls of the house was tons of cool gear, including a Warmoth Strat, a Memphis Les-Paul style guitar, an old-school "doghouse" of unknown vintage and a 1930s Gibson archtop- but what caught my eye was this bizarre looking old Ampeg bass guitar. The body shape was vaguely reminiscent of a Fender Jaguar, it had 2 large F-holes that went through the entire body, and it had a scroll-shaped headstock. The thing weighed a ton, too; but the balance was perfect and it was so nice to play. Does anyone know anything about it based on my description? Thanks for any insight :)
