    I'm going on vacation to Orlando next week. Do you know any good music stores there? My hotel is close to Disney World, so hopefully there a good one close by ;)

    Thank's

    There's this little shop named "Bass Central." They have a few basses and a few amps and it's run by some guys who know a little about bass. One our renowned members on TB, Gard, works there. Perhaps he could show you some Rogue basses and Gorilla amps.

















    SERIOUSLY -- check out www.basscentral.com . It is one of the "creme de la creme" of bass stores! And yes - Gard works there. It is close to Orlando proper and is a "must see" since you'll be in the area.

    Woodchuck, who let you outta your cage!?!?!

    :mad:

    ...back in there, now, before you get hurt!

    ;)

    Rick, how are those Gorilla amps workin' for you, I hope you're still happy with the good deal I gave you...sorry about the Rogue bass falling apart, but it was after the 2 hour warranty had expired....

    :eek:

    bassmonkeee, like you haven't dragged me out to eat too many oversized pancakes with bacon in 'em...pusherman indeed...

    Thor, seen any cheap stone crab claws lately????



    Max, seriously, we're just about 30-45 minutes from the Dizknee area, other side of Orlando. Shoot me a PM if you need any directions or such nonsense. If you stop in, I'll even promise not to sprinkle any of my magic "buy me" dust on the Foderas & MTD's.....

    Well, I daisy chained the 5 you sold me and now Fieldy wants the same set up. I think the -3.18 ohm impedance has really helped my sound.

    When you sold it to me and said it was a "Green Wood" used exclusively by Rogue, I thought you meant the finish. I didn't know it was actually green wood and that the pickups would end up 3 inches from where they originally were.
    But that's okay - I heard a lot more of these basses will be made from the trees felled by Hurricane Ivan by the Wishnevsky Corporation.

    I'd still like to know what that sign over your door means - "Caveat Emptor" :confused:

    You can't go wrong with Bass Central. Gard just set me up with a Modulus Q6 that is awesome. No trip to central Florida is complete without a stop there!

    Terrible news. He's about as smooth as Tom Arnold, and doesn't cuddle.

    The miserable bastard.

    He called, tried to get an endorsement price from me, but we don't do that, and he's too poor to afford 'em otherwise. He's contacting the Gorilla company, I think they'll do wonders to improve his tone.

    Hey, it's not MY fault you didn't do your research about "Green Wood", y'know, you should take the time to find these things out. I did tell you what it was....if you didn't know that's your problem.

    You're just upset 'cuz I wouldn't give you what you really wanted...and I still won't.

    It isn't my fault you are like you are, but I like women.

    Not that there's anything wrong with you being how you are, besides, Jeff seems interested in you....
