    RE: The Dano

    You shouldn't turn up your nose at it. :crying: It's a cheap, funky, fun thing. I'm waiting for parts to do some upgrades (which I almost never to to a guitar, but ...) some Kent Armstrong replacement pickups, an adjustable bridge and some new pots. It's not a bad travel bass.

    Just be careful with the strap! I had one slip once, and instead of breaking the neck, the body extension, complete with the neck bolts, broke off with the neck! I completely agree about how fun they are, though. I'd love to pick up another, or even get that broken one back some day!

    YOu have a very nice rig, congrats. I love the look of those Dano's, they are funky. I am still gassing for a Jerry Jones Longhorn, maybe someday. I have a question, is that the Peterson Strobostomp pedal? If so what are your impressions, and can you see it in the dark? I am looking to get my rack down to 4 spaces so that I stay ultra portable.

    Thanks!

    I have a need for a JJ Longhorn too but my budget is pretty much shot for the moment. I traded a Dano shorthorn guitar for the Longhorn. Easy decision.

    As far as the Strobostomp, I really haven't used it in full on darkness, but the display is certainly bright enough that I can't see it being a problem in any lighting conditions.
