    This morning I brought home a new Ashdown MAG 250-210H combo. It’s an older English made model, that my local dealer had never sold. He has the newer China made MAG 300’s on order so he decided to do a price drop to move it out the door and make room for the new stock. I think it lists for $1100 or $1200, he’s had it on the floor for $750, and offered it to me for $500.

    I really wasn’t looking to buy this large of an amp for what will be a play-at-home-only-amp, but when he offered me an English made MAG for a China made price , my G.A.S. got the better of me.

    It sounds great with my Fender Deluxe P Bass Special that I purchased a few weeks ago. Candy apple red with a white pickguard. I got it used (from the same dealer) but it’s in mint condition. The original owner had already replaced that ugly gold anodized pickguard and installed a BadAss Bass II bridge, both of which I would have done anyway. Anyway, back to playing, I’m loving both of my new purchases.

    hehehe, ok ok

    I should have done that when I first brought it home. I know how you people are... :D

    I’ll see what I can do. This digital camera takes such crappy pix indoors, so I may have to wait until tomorrow so I can do them outside. Its raining here right now. Were currently in the track of what’s left of the hurricane that just went through Florida.
