So yeah, I walk into the store where I have my lessons for the first time in about three months (they don't have a summer semester). I'm disappointed, 'cause they sold the Geddy they had and I really liked playing it, but... ...they had the Yorkville XS400 combo. Drool. Mother-freakn'-. I plug in, and it's...well, it's awesome. Frankly AWESOME. Right now, I've got a Yorkville 100B and Peavey Microbass. I'm going to definitely keep the Microbass for light jamming and home practice, but I can get $200 CAD for the 100B ($50 more than I paid for it ) from a friend, and around $80 from various relatives for both christmas and birthday. I don't need to take the $400 recording course I was going to be taking, and I'm not going to be asking for the SX Tele as a bday gift. Instead, I'll pour in all of the cash I get for the amp and christmas/bday, and get the amp as a combined Christmas/birthday present. Life is very...very good.
