G'Day, I mentioned this in another thread, but hopefully it'll get more traction here. I'm going to be in Petaluma from 17th to 31st March, picking up my new MusicMan StingRay and would love to play it a few times in its country of birth before I drag it to Australia to begin its new life. If you have or know of a jamming group, or somewhere/something else I can do to hook up with some musos and make a din, it'd be great! I'm decently new, but know enough to know how much I don't know. I have a list of stuff I can play, if that helps. Story of how this came about is below, if you like stories... I ordered a Neck-through StingRay4HH in November, having worked out that it'd cost about $800 extra to land it in Oz. The next day, Qantas advertised $999 return flights to San Francisco. My brother-in-law lives in Petaluma, so this was a complete no-brainer. Of course, we're both coming, so we're spending two grand to save eight-hundred, but we do get a holiday into the bargain. We're going to see the GSW v Clippers on Wed 23rd, never been to an NBA game before, maybe they'll let me do the Anthem... Anyway, to allow for the build to take place, I booked the flights for March, only to have the Bass delivered to my BIL before Xmas! I'm fanging for this Bass, my first and last, help me christen it!
