    My DJ-4 and 44-64 custom were both stolen two weeks ago. I'm rebuilding. This arrived today, just in time to make a jam with a couple friends tonight. 2003 44-60 with a nice maple neck.

    Beautiful!! Congrats!! So sorry to hear about the thefts. My son got his 44-02 dlx stolen a couple years ago. That was his 16th Bday gift from me. My stomach still sinks when I think about it.

    I have learned the hard way that electric instruments are ridiculously easy to turn into cash. I filed a police report, contacted every stolen instrument registry I and some helpful TBers could think of. A local music store owner told me it's happening a lot in our region, because we have a major heroin problem. He said the junkies see the local fence, get their money, then go next door to buy junk. Sad, really. Here's a pic of the two I lost.

    Congrats on the new 44-64. Hope that you love it as much the the ones you lost.

    We're off to a good start. Some guys I work with are doing this half-assed open mic, basically to rehearse a duo act they're planning, except maybe it'll be a trio if they find a drummer they really like. These guys are definitely thinking: They get to run auditions and actually get paid. Well, a little, but not a bad little hustle. So I went down tonight, sat in a little bit. In a club environment, running direct to the PA, no compressor, no nuthin', the bass sounded great, felt great. A little more Jazz bark/burp than the DJ-4, which had a set of Bartolinis. It's a heavy hunk of wood, but I knew going in it was gonna be 10 lbs., so I'm cool with that. More than anything else, I'm just happy to be playing again.
