my basic setup is now complete!!!! its a tech21 landmark 600 thru an ampeg pr-410hlf with my vintage epiphone shortscale bass. ill post pictures soon if anyones interested. i plan on also buying a rick to play in my progband (the epiphone just sounds better in the indie band) & some effects for the prog band as well. (wah, dist, delay, reverb, EQ). but yeah im stoked. & a lot of the gear i got came thanks to the info from all you people. so thank you!!!
