    Although I'm not one of the "fortunate" ones (I have to wait til I get my taxes back to get my Christmas present), I was wondering...who else got something wonderful for Christmas? Hope all you had a great Christmas!
     
  2. I got a new spector 5 string, played it for a day... had to take it back today... big crack... might not get it for two weeks...

  9. I didn't get any bass gear. Though I may have a Kona Stick en route after the new year. I do not know if it is the 3 string or a 4.

    I live in a town house so I have neighbors. I thought I would open up my eden cxc110 and cx110 cab as if I just received it for x-mas. Lots of rattling and no knocks from neighbors. They are cool but I guess they must have left. I just wanted to simulate that x-mas euphoria when you get some new gear, sort of like that boy does with the red ryder bb-gun in that movie.

    I'm trying to buck up the corage to part with my money to buy the bass I want.

    Even though i didn't get it for christmas I will treat it as a b-day/Crimbo pressie! Thats reasonable isn't it? :p

    Thanks.
    It plays great. It's the best acoustic I've tried for under $500. Decent 'unpluged' volume too.

    I got a pickup for my upright, so I guess it kinda belongs in the electric realm now. K&K Bass Max is sweet.
