I have been using and loving my old Kustom200 for quite a few years now and rarely, if ever, run into other bassists using them on the road. Granted, i play a genre of music that is tremendously entrenched in trendieness... which translates to expensiveness. Lots of vintage Ampegs, Sunns, Mesas and Matamps.. but not too many kushy kustoms. That being said, i have regularly gotten compliments on the sound that it produces and i could not have been happier. For a long time i didn't even use any pedals besides a tuner and an overdrive that acted more like a volume boost. The icing on the amp-cake is how much i paid for it. $120 back in 03 or 04 (i can't remember). I don't even care that i havent replaced the cord and continue to electrocute myself on a regular bass-is(lol pun). I also have a sunn concert bass and my Kustom blows it out of the water. Does anyone else play Kustoms? There's no point to this really, i just love how great it still sounds and how it stands out these days with the plethora of what else is being played out of. Oh... and i have TOTALLY used it as a pillow on more than one occation!
