    I went to the local GC to pick up some LZ music books and started to try a bass. Well, that was a mistake because one employee was ready to deal.

    The bass

    The amp

    For $1300 I got the gear and an extended warranty for the amp.

    But I do like the LZ songbook.

    It's a BA 115. I was set to get an SWR Workingman, when this guy walks in, plugs in an Ibanez into this Ampeg and just starts making awesome sounds. As soon as he left I plugged in and got the same nice sounds. I was sold right away.

    And $400 OOTD ain't bad either.

    My dogs approved of my new rig too.


    The MM was $900 OOTD.


    Is GC a haggler's paradise or what? :hyper:

    RE: Ampeg
    That was the first "big" amp I've ever played. Some chick in the band playing after us let me use it. VERY nice amp. I have the 210SP which is basically yours only bigger. :)

    RE: Musicman
    Gawd that's hawt. The color combo is amazing. I love black on black with maple.

    I need to get one of those S.U.B. guards. The ones that look like steel plate. :hyper:

    Man I spent a long time agonizing between this and a Rick. Them Ricks have nice tone. But the only two almost new ones they got both had bad hum. I woulda gotten them Ricks for like $700 used. In a case.
  9. congrats on the new gear. now go play the hell out of it.

    Damn, dude. Your MM is f'n tight and the amp looks like a beauty also.

    Now, quit screwing around on the computer. Go play with your new toys. Seriously. Right now.

    Now wait just one minute! A dozen stomp boxes, your floor looks like a freeway, and oh, that dog on the amp!
    Nice photo.

    Congrats indeed! I had one of those BA115's and just loved it. My current drummer killed it for me. It didn't die, it's just that everyone kept asking me to turn it up and I looked down and saw 10s across the board..... hmmmm. I blame it one him b/c I'd played with a few other drummers with it and it kept up nicely. I was sad to see it go! Good score all around... I've been GASing for a maple neck MM... YUMMY!
