Lollerskates! I bought a G&L!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Stanley Design, Mar 26, 2006.

  1. So after searching for the perfect bass I got a great deal on this from a music store going out of business. 900 US dollars cash got the bass and case out the door.

    This bass was NOT for me I thought, in every way. But upon further inspection, it was EXACTLY what I wanted and have always searched for. So for anyone frustrated with their shopping, try something different! Try something you don't think you'll like!!

    I am absolutely hooked on G&L's!

    (For the record I'm using D'darrio chromes on it right now, I like it, should I check out any other strings next?)

    As always, no pictures = no bass, so here, but keep your grubby mitts off!


    Also if Smash reads this, yes it does say SToKE on my wall haha.

    So you have had 5 years to paint over it? Time to do something else classy- like covering your G&L with cool band stickers?:rolleyes:
  7. Paint is expensive in a room this size, like 150 dollars, I can think of a lot better places for money, I have quite a few holes in my wall too. Maybe I'll drill a hole in the body of the bass and superglue a beanie baby in it, just to make you happy! (Except not really)

    Nice bass, but can you give a better close up. Also, is that your room or some abandoned complex.
  10. If I was one of your parents, I would've kicked your ass for spray painting on the walls of your room. At least that's what my parents would have done.

    Nice bass though!
  11. My parents didn't really care, as long as there was no profanity, it's the basement. My parents are very supportive of me. I'll pay to change it someday, but for now money has been tight, I've been thinking of going with a deep red/burgandy/purply colour I picked up a sample at walmart, but wanted to pay off the gear I had picked out first. I'll take some better pictures tomorow.

    About the paint: if you were going for the classy prison cell look you completely succeeded. :p

    Nice G&L, by the way. :p

    Best thread name on TB ever.

    Congrats on your bass, and it would be nice if Michael Scott would stay out of Todd Stanley's thread if he is only going to criticize.

    Dude, nice G&L. I have always wanted one of those. I love the look of those fat humbuckers!

    BTW, enough criticizing the room, guys. My parents painted mine lime green and black for me. It's all about expression.
